Hi there! It’s Charlie O’Shields, here with another episode of Sketching Stuff! As most of you know by now, I adore sketching things each and every day. It’s a habit that I’ve formed and I simply can’t stop. It’s too much fun! I also ramble on a bit after I’ve sketched based on whatever inspires me in the moment. And that becomes the stories you’ll find in this podcast. Though I adore drawing things, it’s color that really steals my heart. And my favorite medium to color with is watercolor! If you also adore watercolor or what to give it a try, I hope you’ll join us for World Watercolor Month in July! This is an annual non-profit event that features the 31 watercolors in 31 days challenge. Or, just jump in and share your watercolors anytime you like during the month by adding #WorldWatercolorMonth whenever you post on social media.
And, best of all, it’s a benefit for The Dreaming Zebra Foundation to help get art supplies for underprivileged kids who just might grow up to become our future artists! I’m quite passionate about getting people of all ages to make art. This world needs the added beauty that we create each time we draw and paint… even if we’re just starting out and trying to figure it all out. I always feel like I’m still a beginner in life and art and that’s just fine by me. I’ll simply continue to spend each and every day joyously and optimistically sketching with watercolor.
