For our prompt of “Poppy” today, I first thought of that poppy field from The Wizard of Oz, but then ended up with a couple of hares relaxing in one. With everything that’s happening in the world, moments like
I’m loving the softness of today’s style. It still has that Charlie O’Shields touch but seems more relaxed. I think that’s what you were going for, and if so, you succeeded! If not, you still succeeded in creating something beautiful!
It’s my favorite so far. I’m kind of obsessed with rabbits. We raised them when I was a young teen. We had a giant white one when I was a gradeschooler. I’ve written poems about them, painted them and I used to walk with a cane which was topped with a wooden rabbit head. Plus I love the moon rabbit.
Here are 31 paintings I did for #WorldWatercolorMonth (and the cover for the journal I made just for #WWM)
I had to laugh when I looked back through them, over half are abstracts that happened as I pondered the prompt for that day. 1596503239530
For our prompt of “Geometric,” I thought of just about everything at once as this one could apply to so many different things. First, I thought of a geodesic dome because I think they’re rather cool. After that, I
Fantastic Charlie! And I do believe dragons love shiny objects or at least they did in the dragon tails that I read. I still think that one option for a book would be the tales of your dog and all his friends. 😉 You have a fair amount of material in your past daily sketches. Just a thought!
Thanks so much, Karen! 😃💕 Yeah, I’ve thought dragons love shiny objects. And I’m rather sure that Phineas will likely be the star of the story. But, I’m thinking there will be lots of new friends as well.
The bride swung the scepter at the baby dragon. Without the jewel, the prongs made an excellent weapon, if she could only hit the stupid thing. The dragon squawked indignantly, and she squawked in frustration, and there wasn’t much difference in the sound. Neither curses nor pleading convinced it to drop the jewel.
“Careful, Princess,” the groom cautioned. “You don’t want a dragon’s curse on you!”
“That’s MY emerald! It’s My scepter and My wedding and no stinking dragon is going to ruin MY wedding!”
She chased the hatchling around the room, swatting at it ineffectually. One spectacular miss hit the groom instead, laying him flat. After that the wedding participants and guests wisely stayed out of reach and simply enjoyed the show.
Finally, the Princess connected. The blow wasn’t enough to hurt anything but the dragon’s pride. That was enough – the dragon spat a curse flame at the Princess.
The curse took hold immediately. Scales erupted over her skin. She sprouted several feet in height, several feet in width, her fingers becoming claws, her face a toothy snout. The tail she grew ended in a spiked ball.
She laid waste to the kingdom, but was finally brought down and relocated into the wilderness where she could cause no more harm.
And thus the first bridezilla was created.
Cutie dragon And your story is just so sweet … but for overall tension and drama I award Sandra the Golden Globe! I enjoy you both so much thank you for making this such a fun and creative community( even tho I really hated you a lot Today for forcing me to have a geometry lesson from hubby in order to draw frigging triangles!)!
Thanks so much, Susan! 😃💕 hehe… yeahs Sandra wins the award, lots of drama and tension there indeed. Love it! And so thrilled you’re enjoying the community! Actually, neither Sandra nor I wrote this month’s prompts. So you’ll have to blame Shanyn for the unwanted geometry lesson! 😉 lol
He is just adorable and surely no thief. I think the emerald spent Dragon years buried just outside his door. A heavy rain washed away the dirt and when he woke up and went out for his morning walk the gem sparkled in the sun. Since dragons love sparkles he dragged it home and discovered it is a Magic Emerald………..
What a creative little guy! I love him. I haven’t done any of my DW sketches yet this month, but I still continue to do others. I did one the other day that was a beach, that included a wave. So I guess that counts as one. 😉
Thanks so much! 😃💕 Actually, they all count at doodlewash sketches if it’s a drawing or anything with watercolor! hehe… prompts are totally optional, so if you’re posting, be sure to use the hashtag for the month!
He’s a cute dragon! Kind of a Robin Hood of the cave guy. If that’s his modus operandi he needs a foil to make a story. Who or what doesn’t want him to succeed? An elf, another dragon, a giant? Is there a princess or prince involved? You can go crazy with this set up!
