Hi, again! It’s Charlie O’Shields, back with another episode of Sketching Stuff! I’ll admit that I really do love to geek out on new technology. I love all of the things that we can do today and think it’s really cool that much of it simply wasn’t possible even just a few years ago. But, as awesome as all of the new tech might be, I’m most enamored by things that we’ve always had the ability to DO! Like making things and creating art. It’s incredible what we can create by hand with just the simplest of tools. And the only thing we have to plug into is our own creativity and imagination. Of course, I adore sketching with watercolor most, because it’s just so much fun!
Yet, when it comes to technology, my favorite part is that it can connect artists all across the globe. That’s always been the mission of Doodlewash.com. It’s a joy to help artists find other artists that can inspire them with their style and approach. We all have very different tastes and there are so many different ways to paint and sketch. Personally, I continue to be inspired to create each day by seeing people all across the earth making something wonderful. Whether it’s seeing a new approach or just triggering a wonderful memory. So, here’s another little collection of stories that appeared while I was sketching watercolor fun!
