Hello watercolorists!
Trash Dove Hello (not my art) 

No, you don't have to be scared, this time we don't have a challenge for you, just a regular theme. =D

Some time ago we asked you which theme would you prefer and the most votes got "Night".
a sparkle night 

You voted, we announce it. ;)
As you now know...
It's AQUACHALLENGE time!
Where were we? :plotting: Oh, yes...
 
_______________________________
The THEME is:
.:Mini moon n star:. Cresent Moon Emoji   NIGHT Cresent Moon Emoji .:Mini moon n star:. 
_______________________________


Night by Maarel

at night by LiigaKlavina   The Veil of Night by Nimbus2005

  By night by Vasylissa

 
Some KEYWORDS related to NIGHT: 
night sky, night time activities (sleeping, watching the starry night, camping at night etc.), lights at night, fireworks at night. If you're not sure you can ask (also in a note, if you don't want to give away your secret plan). Either way the night should be the main focus!

Hello! I wanted to submit my art but it says I can't ;___; "only 1 deviaton per 30 days per-folder" :( I didn't upload anything to that folder but I uploaded something in the group. Does it means I can't participate? Because I submitted something to another folder this month? Pls help, I'm sad now ;___;
Reply
:icontokyomoonlight:
TokyoMoonlight Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2019   Traditional Artist
Yes, you probably did submit to the folder...half of the submissions I get from members are submitted to the wrong, AquaChallenge folder.

And you probably did it again. :giggle:
Because the AquaChallenge folder is set to 1 per month, the regular members submission folder is set to 1 submission per day.

If you have an entry for the contest, just submit it to any folder you can, and tell me it's for the AquaChallenge. And I will take care that it gets to the right folder ;)

jointshadow Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2019  Student Traditional Artist
I don't remember if I did such thing but you might be right. So.. my fault!

I submitted my artwork to the "Member Submissions" folder. It's called Deer sky.
If you could move it to the right folder I am going to be forever grateful for your help!

Hi , do you accept watercolor combined with some acryl ? 
I'm not used to use only watercolor and for this reason I don't have some colors ... I have them but they are acryl . 
Reply
:icontokyomoonlight:
TokyoMoonlight Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2019   Traditional Artist
Yes, but they have to be diluted with lots of water so they LOOK like watercolors...so acrylic washes are ok. It has to look transparent and not opaque if you know what I mean.

:icongeorgexvii:
GeorgeXVII Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2019  Professional Traditional Artist
I understand it! Thanks , unfortunatelly I don't have enough experience working with watercolors and lots of water . :hug:
I'll create an artwork with this theme but without participating because for sure the colors will look opaque !

Looking forward to see all the entries  :heart:

May I just ask how much points? :blush:

Well, collabs...we could say that you got "help" by someone if 2 artists make the artwork. :plotting: For now I don't think that collabs are ok. But! I think that this would make a great AquaChallenge. =D That all entries would be collabs.
