Hello our dear members!
2018YupiANanEmote006 


That was such an intense voting...the 2nd and 3rd place were apart for just 1 vote. I think I've fainted. 
That little heart of ours did jump quite a lot from excitement. 2015YupiANanEmoteGIF00201 

This AquaChallenge was one of the best we had. The entries were so awesome if we consider you could use only 3 color pigments to create them. Truly amazing :nod: real masters of watercolor.


Don't let us waste any time and let us announce our
AquaChallenge WINNERS

The theme was  »Back to basics« and all together we had received 18 entries.

Hands by MetAnnie


Our guest judge ayjaja 's reason for choosing this artwork:
"In the most creative way it combines the use of pure colors and the idea of using them (so they are mixed and on the other hand for the one who watches the picture it's pretty clear, that there are only basic colors used."

Our creativity prize winner will receive:
Bullet; Blue 70 Points  from our guest judge ayjaja 
Bullet; Blue 55 Points  from Mermaid :merla:

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?
bunny 4 by cherrielty

"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.
