  • For Day Twenty-Two of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Jittery,” a cup of coffee came to mind. Well, actually a few too many cups of coffee as sometimes happens to me when I’m not paying

    • Your sketch made me laugh! Is Phineas wearing your turquoise specs? 😀 I start my morning with coffee, freshly-ground and brewed, but now, only two mugs of French roast, or those jitters will catch up with me later on. Looking forward to your new creations!

      • Thanks so much, Kathy! 😃💕Glad I made you laugh! Yeah, I try to keep it to two cups, but sometimes, it gets out of hand. hehe

    • I do love a cup of coffee to get me going in the morning, but I try to keep it to only one cup a day, and I try to skip once or twice a week. It isn’t that I get jittery, but that I get immune. I won’t get the pick-me-up unless I drink more, and then more, and … well, I could drink 50 cups a day and not get the jitters at all.

    • Love your doodlewash Charlie! Thank you for all of your hard work for WWM. Please know we really do appreciate you.

    • Charlie when I told my doctor how much coffee I drink and how many chocolate bars I eat in a week his eyes fell out of his head. He said no more than two cups a day and no more than two bars a week.When I escalated to the huge Lindt bars (that chili chocolate is heavenly) he said one a week (1.5 squares a day hehehhe). So I quit drinking caffeinated coffee and discovered Folgers decaf. It is wonderful and tastes like caffeinated. Espresso at night? Even this Italian would never pull that one — I don’t like being fully awake in the middle of the night because the coffee wore off (although as I say I don’t drink caffeine now).

      It sure is awesome to have you here every day. I wonder how we can all get you to stay????? Should we bug Phillipe? Phineas?

      • Thanks so much! 😃💕 Yeah, I’m getting the same reports from the doctor so my portions of most things are dropping considerably! lol And awww.. I’m not going back to daily posts again, except for this very special month. Mostly because I don’t have the time to do these posts and my other projects. Many of my projects aren’t even watercolor, so I can’t even post it here! hehe But one big cool project is creating a solution for that. 😉 Stay tuned!

    • Great doodle, Charlie. I had a macchiato once. It made my head spin and my lips go numb. I’ve never had one since. I love strong coffee but that was too much.

      • Thanks so much, Gary! 😃💕 Oh wow… now that does sound too strong. Which, of course, means I’d try it immediately just to see! lol

    • Thanks, Marisela! 😃💕 I have seen that Seinfeld episode.. too funny! And yeah, our fur babies are at the top of the list. I’ll give Phineas that hug. He had to go get shots at the vet today so he’ll need it!

    • Awww.. these posts are deceptively time-consuming so I had to put most projects on hold this month. But, I’ll always be here at least once a week and try to pop in more when I can! 😃💕

  • For Day Twenty-One of World Watercolor Month, and the optional prompt of “Tactile,” I imagined playing a rousing round of pat-a-cake, or sometimes called patty cake, with a cat. Not entirely sure how I ended up

    • I love that feeling when you’re painting and everything mark you make leads you to making another mark. Those are always the best paintings!

    • That’s a great doodle,Charlie. To my eye he’s waking on one off those glass floors you get in tall buildings. The look on his face says that he’s enjoying the experience.

    • Thanks, Marisela! 😃💕 I have been to Mexico, but only once years ago. And I haven’t tried Philippe to get Philippe to do the handshake… hehe… mostly because I can’t even quite remember it all! And yay for chicken fried steak! Yum! And that’s a great name as well! lol

  • For Day Twenty of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Savory,” I ended up with a little mouse coveting a grilled cheese sandwich. I have a similar reaction when it comes to this sandwich as it

    • My husband only likes cheddar, so I seldom have cheese in the house. I’ve been known to amuse the wait staff at restaurants by ordering the cheese tray for my main meal if it’s a good one. It’s the only time I get the good stuff, and I never have room for it and an entree – so it’s the entree that goes!

    • Pretty much feel the exact same way about cheese in just about any form…sigh. Did try the low fat string cheese once, just once, ick and back to the real stuff…in moderation, of course.😊

    • Charlie, 500 grams a month. That is 125 g per week. A block of cheese is 600 g so I cut it into six portions, take one and cut it into four, and leave the last one alone. Then I package a portion and a quarter portion per week. The last portion is for little squares maybe for the following month. So a daily cheese allowance is not very much. Way too much saturated fat. And if you use shredded cheese or parmesan, there goes your ration instead of (not along with) the block variety. On a cleanse day (no meat, fish, or chicken) you can have all the cheese you want. My doctor makes the eating rules and you know he got me in top shape. Cute mouse — on a sandwich? Eeeeekkk!

      • Thanks so much! and yeah… on a sandwich! lol 😃💕 My portions have become so small now I wonder why I even both. But even a mouse-sized bit of cheese is wonderful!

    • That’s the first time a doodle has made my mouth water. I’m a big cheese fan myself, Charlie. I tried lite cheese a while ago but didn’t like it. My favourite cheese is the bit I have with my glass of beer, in the garden, after work on a Friday afternoon.

    • That is so cool – I have a cheese drawer too lol!! This was just delightful 🙂 I love the little mouse!!

    • I feel like we’re having a “Cheesies Anonymous” meeting! And I definitely have clapped for all the shares! A mouse, a sandwhich, and other cheese lovers-perfect day. That little mousie looks like he’s in heaven, as I would be, with a double king-sized cheese sandwhich to lounge on and eat my way through. I am allowed mostly goat cheese these days and a I must say it makes a great quesadilla on corn tortillas! Thanks for the bliss Charlie, and keep coming back!

    • That looks so tempting, I can almost overlook that there’s a mouse camping on it! I love cheese too. There’s nothing like cheese on toast on a cold winter’s night – quick, easy and satisfying! Win win!

      • Hehe! Thanks, Jacob! 😃💕 Indeed! I think everything can be made better with a bit of cheese. In my imagination I’d shoo the mouse away and eat the sandwich anyway, but thankfully not in real life! lol

    • Ha ha I love the story and the painting goes with it wonderfully! Not a cheese lover but I am like that with my chocolate lol
      Looking good!

    • Thanks, Marisela! 😃💕Cheese and club crackers are my fave… but only get 5 crackers… that’s the serving. lol And chocolate is in a whole other realm… hehe…that’s too funny. It’s impossible to ration that!

  • #WorldWatercolorMonth2021 Prompt: Savory. The leaves of the Summer Savory have a hot, peppery taste that make it a favorite with some cooks. The Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans thought it was an aphrodisiac!

  • For Day Nineteen of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Tickle,” we have a little giggling kitten. When I was a kid, being tickled was silly fun and even the threat of being tickled would send me

    • I’ve always had an odd sense of humor, partly because my brain is stuffed full of useless information. Like someone would say something about bees and I’d make a Sherlock Holmes joke. It would seem an obvious connection to me.

      • haha! I’m the same. Sometimes people just stare at me, and then I forget they’re not inside my head with me! lol 😉

    • Yes Charlie I know. I find humour in almost every situation and even found a funny at a funeral. People don’t always appreciate it (dour folk with no right brain activity, sniff) but I don’t let that stop me. Have fun and don’t ever leave that inner kid at home without you.

      • Thanks so much! 😃💕 Yeah, serious people seem so sad to me, even when they’re not at a funeral. hehe I think life should be silly and fun!

    • I can laugh or feel gigglish at the most absurd inappropriate times Charlie so I so understand that ;). I love your kitten 🙂 I have a story that probably only you would understand given what you shared with us in your story 🙂 Thanks for the tickle 😉

      • Thanks so much, Zoie! 😃💕 Yay for feel gigglish… I love that. And feel free to share your story you like here… if people read mine, they’ll definitely understand yours! hehe 😉

        • Well my very favourite and dearest friend had died leaving her older daughter (who was married with one child) and twin 14 year old sons. She had died of cancer but her death was absolutely beautiful and we were all there with her. It was as if we could see her leaving to this beautiful place – she was happy and it was so wonderful to share that last moment with her. Well so then the 4 of us are going to the Funeral Home a few days later. First of all the Funeral Director looked EXACTLY like Ichabod Crane and that sent the twins and I into gales of laughter which brought very stern looks down on us from Ichabod and his wife. Then we were sitting at the front, the only people at the viewing (to us she was already gone) but she had always wanted to be the person who ‘fixed’ people and got them ready for viewing so she was very very judgemental about such things. The twins and I and her daughter spotted all the things she would have commented on right away and that brought more laughter (more stern looks). Then the twins and I were looking overhead and apparently had the same thought at the same time – wondering if the dead people above us would ever crash down – which for some reason sent us into a fit of the giggles. I don’t know why, but it was funny at the time and we just couldn’t stop. Because we couldn’t stop Laurie couldn’t either and we were ultimately asked politely but sternly to leave if we could not control ourselves. See – most inappropriate time ever 😉 but my best friend would have loved it 🙂

          • THIS!! Those are the best moments! I adore that story. And any friend of yours would appreciate it fully. I don’t like being made to act in a way that even the person I’m honoring wouldn’t appreciate anyway. hehe… Giggle on!! 😃💕

    • You have the right idea of how to live life happily. When my sons lived at home, at dinner time, we would always go around the table and ask “ What was your funnest, bestest thing today” as a reminder to look for the good. At 80, my husband and I still do this every night before bedtime.

    • Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yay for a bubbly and bright personality. The world needs more laughter, not frowns. And yeah, I bet you’ll feel very different about tickling then! lol 😉

    • Awww that’s the best story! 😃💕 I love that. Hearing a medical report is always stressful… I think people should always have a 5 year old around to lighten the mood. Or their inner child… whichever is available! hehe Here’s to more funny moments!

  • My name is Pablo Rubén and I’m from Madrid, Spain. I think that I could not determine the beginning of my hobby, passion or obsession for drawing and painting. Watercolor would come after going through many other

    • Pablo I did exactly the same thing as Mugdha – I thought I was looking at photographs when I first started reading. I was halfway through when I realize that they were paintings – WOW .. I really am lost for words. Nature and life is really what I want to do. Oh my gosh, but (and I am assuming that Plein air simply means a person is painting outside) how many hours do you sit at one painting? Do you ever use photography or is it always on site? Thank you so much for sharing your story and so much of your work – it is spectacular, all of it.

    • Hi Pablo,

      Already fan of your work. I have been following you on Instagram for some time. It is great to see your post here. Thanks for writing about your art journey. Do I need tell you your artwork is splendid 😉

      Thanks
      Manish

    • Beautiful art! Thank you for sharing with us.

    • Pablo, your paintings are so gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your artistic journey with us!

    • Amazing paintings! Love those reflections! I could just dip my toe in and feel the water!
