FAQ and Submission rules

The goal of our group watercolorists is to provide resources pertaining to the creation of art with water-soluble media, using translucent, painterly, watercolor-like techniques and to display those works for the benefit and enjoyment of our members.

You may submit one image once a day to our Members Submissions folder.  Upon acceptance your submission will be assigned to the appropriate gallery folder by a moderator.

 Submission Rules - why are submissions accepted or rejected

:bulletgreen: Paintings created with water-soluble media such as watercolor, concentrated watercolor ink, acuarela, liquid watercolor, transparent ink, India ink, Ecoline, coffee, tea, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, acrylic washes and gouache are welcome.  If your image has none of these materials, your submission cannot be accepted.

:bulletgreen:  All deviations must include the media (paint, ink, pencils, etc) used to create the image in the description of the work.  Submissions without this information cannot be accepted.

:bulletgreen: Works must be made in a painterly manner. If you use any acceptable media and apply them in a dry, drawing, or opaque  manner, your submission cannot be accepted.

:bulletgreen: Finished paintings only. No in-progress works or unfinished sketches can be accepted.  

:bulletgreen: We accept tasteful nudity and other tasteful forms of mature content as long as the submission acknowledges DeviantArt nudity policy.
FAQ #23: What are DeviantArt policies on nudity?
FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?

:bulletgreen: Images with offensive subject matter may be declined at the discretion of administrators.

:bulletgreen:  Paintings must be presented properly. If the submission is photographed or scanned crooked, notebook wires visible, paint sets and or brushes visible, too dark, blurry, and so on, the submission cannot be accepted.
Here are some references should you use a camera to scan your work Scanning With A Camera 2 by Cmac13 and Scanning With A Camera 1 by Cmac13

:bulletgreen:  No digital interference to the artwork is allowed, apart from adjusting brightness/ contrast, watermark, cropping the scan or photograph etc. Works with digitally added content cannot be accepted.
(Exceptions could be made if the digital part is not a part of overall composition and does not obscure the watercolor part of the artwork.)


I have an idea for the group!
Tell us! Send us a note!

Can I affiliate with your club?

Of course! We only affiliate with groups/clubs with focus on traditional media or painting. We also affiliate with groups/clubs that promote learning. Follow the process in this tutorial to ask for an affiliation!

Why my artwork is still waiting for approval?

Even though we have over 9,000 members, we work very hard to have all submissions reviewed within twenty four hours of your submitting them.  


Ask on this blog or send us a note!
