July Is World Watercolor Month!

July is World World Watercolor Month -- a worldwide event featuring the ultimate challenge of 31 Watercolors is 31 Days!

The idea is to paint every day (or as many as you can) and post your work on various platforms to bring awareness for arts education to get art supplies for kids who need them via The Dreaming Zebra Foundation.


So join me! Grab your art supplies and paint often, post often! Use the hashtag #WorldWatercolorMonth when posting your art and use it to meet other watercolor artists around the globe!

Since I just arrived at the lake this week for the first time, I thought I'd share one from last year that might never have made it to the blog! Once there, I plan to paint every day! (I may not POST every day -- that makes me a little crazy! But I will share all I do, the good, bad and ugly!)

I LOVE that boat. I can't seem to use watercolors, but I also don't draw. Not in my wheelhouse. Your watercolors are always lovely, and I look forward to seeing them throughout the month of July.

Jeanie, you would have to get on a plane, come to Braunschweig and try (!!!!) to teach me!
Warning: I´m not talented anymore...
But I look forward to adore your work :-)

Love those watercolors....esp the one with the paints. I wished I could make myself do something like that, I just can't seem to get myself in that frame of mine.

That lake-with-trees may be my favorite (non-feline-subject)of your paintings. It's quite wonderful, and makes me yearn to be there at the lake.

I had no idea about the challenge. I haven't even prepared properly for this. And my Art Spirit says "macrame" all the time. But maybe next year I'll remember to join it.

World Watercolor Month! I didn't know that this was a July thing! Trust me to be late to the party...;) What a great challenge... Looking forward to seeing your lake-side painting when you get to share them... This one from last year is wonderful! :) Happy FUN every day, Jeanie! ((HUGS))
