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.
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.
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.
More info about it on the official world watercolor month website:
Your watercolorists team
BTW, I absolutely love your work!
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
The challenge is for you...when you post to our group i'ts not so important
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
Some are really dedicated to those challenges...last year we had at least 2 members who completed it in full
Maybe you wanna take a look around to find inspiration and courage to try it:
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
Not that I would steal this
The main thing is to make art (with watercolors) each day. You can make a doodle or a master piece
If you would just make some watercolor abstract textures this would also count as an artwork ^^
We had this last year, so for our members to prepare, it's good if we notice them in advance^^
Last year we also did a feature journal if I remember it right
Maybe this year too We'll see
Oh...we did 2 parts
World Watercolor Month 2017 Feature Part IJuly was a month dedicated to watercolor, so it was only logical that our group watercolorists joined the fun.
Each of our lovely members could participate in this awesome 31 day challenge "WORLD WATERCOLOR MONTH 2017" and submit their watercolor paintings.
It was all about #worldwatercolormonth
Some of you were really amazing and completed the challenge in full or had made an astonishing number of artworks for the challenge.
As promised you all deserve to get a feature as a special recognition for this accomplishment and as a thank you for your effort.
Because we had more than 200 submissions for the
World Watercolor Month 2017 Feature Part IIWelcome to our Part II of World Watercolor Month feature.
You can find the first part of the feature here.
Because we had more than 200 submissions for the WorldWatercolorMonth folder we decided to feature max. 3 artworks from the same artists. Thank you for understanding.
World Watercolor Month 2017
FEATURE Part II
Give it a try...if you make just 1 piece per week you will make 4 painting. It's better then nothing
That's the official name for this event.
World Watercolor Month (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.
But we use also the short version WWM
The official webpage link is also in the journal, but maybe you missed it:
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
