Hello! Wave 

Inktober, MerMay...let's have another great month of fun.
There's still 1 week left till July, but so you won't miss an awesome opportunity, we are here to remind you of something awesome to come. :la: Hop 

July is 

WORLD WATERCOLOR MONTH

31 watercolors in 31 days

Yes, it's a month dedicated to watercolor. And since we are a watercolor group it's only right that we take part in it too. 

Are you in?

"So what do I have to do?" 
Just paint each day in July a watercolor painting and tag it with #WorldWatercolorMonth 
and of course don't forget to submit it to our group. =D

On July 1st we will again open our World Watercolor Month folder.

Any member of watercolorists can submit one artwork created with watercolor daily to the "World Watercolor Month" folder, in addition to the normal limit of one artwork per day.

Normal rules apply, and your work must be tagged with #WorldWatercolorMonth to be accepted into this folder.

"But I don't know what to paint for 31 days!"
No worries, there's an official prompt list which you can use.
Or you can make your own.

2018YupiANanEmote019 Thank you...I just know that when I make landscapes I'm saving lots of time...don't need to make any drawings...maybe just a straight horizontal line and a circle for the sun and that's it. :giggle:

I'd like to but I can't do all themes for 31 days. :( I can choose few themes to draw. (Also, I just joined your group)

This activity is not from our group. It's a world wide activity.

You can paint as much as you can. What you want to paint depends also on you. We just informed our members about this and if somebody wishes to take part in it, that we will also again open a special folder for it =D

Don't worry about our group ;)
The challenge is for you...when you post to our group i'ts not so important =D

Last year we left the folder open even in the first week of August for all who wanted to "finish" the challenge till the end.

You can painting something on Monday and post it on Friday...the main thing is you paint...practice :la:

Haha rofl. I am sure that some people find it easy to paint every day? I will give it a go. Can I also use a bit of pen and ink with my watercolour? :)

:dummy: for accepting submission into our group, the artwork has to follow our regular group rules...so ink is ok, pen also when it's used for details, lineart^^

Some are really dedicated to those challenges...last year we had at least 2 members who completed it in full :happybounce:

Maybe you wanna take a look around to find inspiration and courage to try it:
World Watercolor Month #24 by RafaCM   Sail by TheUnconfidentArtist

:idea: revamp Tard Idea One more thing: Try to use a smaller size of paper...that way you cut the painting time a lot...choose more simpler subjects to paint and make a list of what you want to paint each day beforehand...if you use reference photos also. That way you can start to paint right away without searching for what you want to paint that day ;)

Thank you so much. I already have some ideas of what I want to paint, but they won't be very complex pictures. Does that matter? :)

I'm not a master of this event also...I just heard about it the previous year :giggle:

The main thing is to make art (with watercolors) each day. You can make a doodle or a master piece =D
If you would just make some watercolor abstract textures this would also count as an artwork ^^

This challenge can be completed in full (31 days) or you can try to make as often as you can. Every watercolor painting you create during July would technically count as world watercolor month artwork. Just like every mermaid painting in May =D

Give it a try...if you make just 1 piece per week you will make 4 painting. It's better then nothing :la:

WOOOW now this! Idk if I can do this but I am interested in joining and polishing my watercolor! :D can we have an official name for this event? Something catchy like inktober or mermay's event 
Reply
:icontokyomoonlight:
TokyoMoonlight Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2018   Traditional Artist
That's the catchiest as it gets XD
That's the official name for this event.
World Watercolor Month =D (it's in the same official category as Inktober, MerMey, NaNoWriMo)

This name is also trademarked. It's not our name (from watercolorists ) but by someone else. Charlie O’Shields is the creator of Doodlewash, and is the founder of World Watercolor Month. :cutenod: 

But we use also the short version WWM ;)

The official webpage link is also in the journal, but maybe you missed it:

They released the official prompts just recently. I was worried that this year they won't have them :P

One of our members had an awesome idea of choosing the theme "jellyfish". The last one for the world watercolor month was the best XD

I just got my hand on a book with watercolour basics inside
And they have a few step by steps for very simple painting I'd like to try as an exercice
this could be the occasion

Since the challenges are always hectic, I thought it would be good to make an announcement for artists to prepare beforehand.

If you manage to decide on what you will paint each day is a huge help :B
