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!) If you are participating in the daily challenge, simply mention it in your post! Also, if you’re not a member of Doodlewash Club, please join us and post your work there as well!

I know many of you are participating in the Inktober 2017 challenge this month which is awesome! Good luck! But, I do hope you’ll also splash a little color on your doodles as well and continue watercolor painting in October! Feel free to use the prompts below as alternative prompts for that challenge if ever need a little extra inspiration! Whatever you decide to make, just keep DOing it!


Want to play along? This month is all about celebrating autumn with just a touch of Halloween thrown in for good measure. And if it’s not actually autumn where you are, it’s a time to celebrate food, colors, and moonlit nights. From a crackling bonfire to bushels of apples, it’s a celebration of fun and cozy memorable moments. So grab a glass of cider, a handful of nuts and your paintbrush, of course, and join us!
