Hello again! It’s Charlie O’Shields, back with a very special episode of Sketching Stuff! It’s been one year since I started this podcast and 4 years ago this month that I very first started painting with watercolor each and every day. And, it’s also the start of World Watercolor Month in July. If you post watercolor art online, be sure to remember to add #WorldWatercolorMonth during the whole month of July each and every time you post your art. It’s a non-profit event to raise awareness for arts education and to get art supplies for underprivileged kids who need them via The Dreaming Zebra Foundation. Visit WorldWatercolorMonth.com to learn more!
I often get asked how on earth I manage to paint something each and every day. Well, it’s really not as difficult as you think and doing so is incredibly rejuvenating and wonderful. That’s why I try to get everyone to DO it with me. This is a collection of stories to inspire the artist inside each and every one of us. And, if you’ve yet to try painting with watercolor, July is a perfect month to start!
