We would like to remind you about our current AquaChallenge: SNOWFLAKES. You can submit your entry till 20th of January 2017! So there's still almost a month to come up with your entry.
Since we are heading towards the end of the year 2016, we would like to express our big gratitude to you, our members. In the year 2016, over 800 new members joined watercolorists and over 3500 artworks have been submitted to our gallery.
Today is truly a Christmas spirit in Watercolorists... as our crew started talking human language. Hear us out, it's the only time in the year! Your dedicated team wishes to share with you some thoughts:
Dear watercolorists members, thank you so much for a brilliant year filled with the most beautiful and creative watercolor artworks any Group Admin could ever wish for! I have learned so much from each and everyone of you through this year: so many techniques, so many styles and so much imagination and creativity in one art medium; you've all blown me away! May your talents continue to grow in 2017.
I joined the group's admin team in May 2016 and I'm so happy I got this opportunity. I always try to give my best to help the group and its members. And this is something I wish you would do to. Try to be your best you can be. Don't give up on art or on painting. Keep on practicing and experimenting, even if you make mistakes. Painting isn't about making pretty artworks, it's about expressing yourself. I wish you lot's of courage, perseverance and luck in the year 2017!
Yet another year with watercolorists wraps up. This year was special because we waved goodbye to our former Founder Cmac13 and phantsythat as our long-term Moderators, but our lovely Art-by-Cricket and TokyoMoonlight proved to be excellent replacements. We introduced AquaChallenge thanks to Marcela's idea. We accepted thousands of mindblowing watercolor artworks, discussed countless topics and said "Thank you!" to one another over million times (well I didn't count but I'm sure it's close ). For the millionth and one, thank you for being there, Watercolorists, and making this group so delightful experience. See you in 2017!
The whole admin staff of the group wishes you a healthy, happy and creative year 2017!
And now to the surprise part
To celebrate the year 2016 we invite you all to share some awesome artworks.
