Though our World Watercolor Group will always be a “paint whatever you like” collective, many of you have asked for inspiration and ideas to keep your daily painting routine going. To keep things simple, whenever you post your watercolors, simply continue to tag them #WorldWatercolorGroup on all social networks so we can find you and link to your lovely work in real time! (even if you’re not participating in this very optional theme this month!) Also, if you’re not a member of our Facebook Group, please join us there as well!

NOVEMBER ADVENTURE – A Celebration Of Food

Want to play along? For the November Doodlewash Adventure, since we’re rapidly moving toward the holiday season, that means a lot of eating and fabulous food! Also, there are a lot of official food-related celebrations in November, so over half of the prompts this month correspond with these often obscure, fun, and relatively unknown holidays (check out NationalDayCalendar.com to see the more specific “day” or “month” celebrations these could relate to!). So, why not join in the celebration?! Grab a knife, fork, and spoon and dig into some fabulous food this month. As with any friendly dining experience, substitutions are welcome! Paint what you love to eat! Or whatever comes to mind!
