Just Sweet Grapes - #WorldWatercolorGroup #doodlewash #wine #grapes

Since I just painted a leaf and didn’t feel like painting one again yet, for today’s prompt of “plants” we have some grapes on the vine. Grapes are a personal favorite of mine, not only in their raw form, but also because they’re the primary ingredient…

The Genie In The Shell - #WorldWatercolorGroup #doodlewash #seashell #magic

As I’ve mentioned before, I grew up in the Midwest surrounded by lovely lakes, but I never saw a beach until I was in college. This made shells that didn’t come from a snail, rather mysterious and cool. When I was little, my mother once made little cloth…

Love Is All Around Us -#WorldWatercolorGroup #doodlewash #ladybugs #valentinesday2017

So today’s prompt was “fire” which I guess can be apt for Valentine’s Day, as it’s often associated with passion. As I thought about the colors of fire, I inexplicably landed instead on these two snuggling ladybugs, which also seemed appropriate for the…

When Nature Paints With Rainbows - #WorldWatercolorGroup #doodlewash #lorikeet #parrot

Today’s prompt was “rainbows” and I had every intention of painting an actual rainbow, but got distracted by a photo I found from my trip to the zoo. On this particular trip, you could enter a large cage and as you walked through, rainbow lorikeets…

A Snail In A Puddle - #WorldWatercolorGroup #doodlewash #snail

After a rain, it’s common here to see snails sliding around in shallow puddles as drops of water continue to fall from the trees. They seem to come out of nowhere, most likely washed into that location, but then moving so slowly that it’s nearly…
