All We Need Is U



We successfully finished World Watercolor Month 2019.
In case you missed the awesome feature...here it is again =D
Just for you :blowkiss:
World Watercolor Month 2019 Feature

You can find the folder with all of the paintings here: 
World Watercolor Month 2019 folder.

And guess what...soon...I said soon!!! comes again the most epic, most cruel challenge of the year...
1 ink artwork each day for 31 days straight.

And! Because our members are so eager to always join it, we will make a new folder dedicated to Inktober. We will accept ink paintings and drawings. But all the other group's rules apply too :cutenod: 
How come? We made a voting poll, remember?! ;)

:smallwave: V2 by Synfull Please read our complete SUBMISSION RULES.

SUBMISSION LIMIT: 1 artwork per DAY.

Here are some quick guidelines:
Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Accepted art media: water-soluble media such as watercolor, concentrated watercolor ink, acuarela, liquid watercolor, transparent ink, India ink, Ecoline, coffee, tea, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, gouache and acrylic washes in a translucent manner.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate In the description box of your artwork has to be written which art media (ex.: watercolor, ink…) was used to create your painting. You don't need to name the brands. Writing "watercolor" in your tags is not enough.

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate The artwork has to be presented properly (no crooked photographs or scans, notebook wires visible, paint sets and or brushes visible, blurry and so on…)

Pixel: Orange Star by apparate Nothing digital can be added, painted or drawn on the artwork. Exceptions are: regular editing of the scan / photo (adjusting brightness / contrast / sharpness, cropping, adding watermarks).

Simple Smiley by ware4me We always write the artist the reason for declining the artwork. If possible we ask for corrections and for re-submisson of the artwork.
