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!

My name is Gail Juszczak and I live in Southern Wisconsin. I have a bachelor’s degree in Art Education from University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I was interested in art in high school and found that was my place of c
I had to nod when you mentioned “…wet on wet paint mixed with clear and bright edges..”, because it was the first thing I noticed in your work, along with the spot-on control of your values. Your art is stunning! Thank you for sharing your artistic experience with us.
For our prompt of “Gator,” I wasn’t sure what to make so I let my mind wander a bit. One of the first things that came to mind was the idea of crocodile tears, which is a way to describe a fake or insincere
Wonderful Charlie! I have a younger sister that is an expert at crocodile tears but enough of that. Ooh a book? It has only been a matter of time as to when you would ride and illustrate one. We are all here for moral support!
I know some people can just outline and come up with their story, but I always have to play with ‘what if’s until suddenly one of them snaps into place and blam! The whole story just falls into place. From what I’ve read from various authors, I suspect the ‘what iffers’ are less prolific, but more innovative and for my taste, more interesting.
Aww thanks so much, Sharon! 😃💕 Yeah, reptiles and amphibians are not my first choice for cute, when I think of them. But, I like trying to make them appear a touch cuter. I’m so thrilled I could brighten your day!
Aww thanks so much, Benjamin! 😃💕 You are amazing! Never stop painting. Keep right on making things every single day! You have a wonderful gift and the world needs to watch it grow. Share what you make and love each moment of the journey my friend!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Aww I’m so happy my words helped yesterday. Yes, please! Never give up! It’s a weird and wild journey… we always want it to be a constant leap forward, but it’s just not like that in reality. Yet, if you stick with it, those leaps forward always appear. It’s the craziest thing… and when they DO… you realize what it’s all been about!
Welcome to a brand new month and our Awesome August Doodlewash Art Challenge! I hope everyone who just completed World Watercolor Month is ready to keep right on sketching and painting. Why stop now? For our first
Fantastic Charlie and such a happy scene for day one! Hope you are having a great weekend. It was a very good Saturday with yard work, art, reading and a new art exhibit starting this week! Life is good.
Thanks, Mugdha! 😃💕 Thrilled you enjoyed this! Yeah, it gets better over time, but daily, it can still feel like two steps forward and three steps back this can be frustrating. It’s taken me these past 5 years to get the confidence to make more narrative sketches and things from imagination. Now? When I take two steps back, it’s at least not quite as far back as it used to be! BUT… I still have to look way back at early sketches to remind myself of that. 😉
