Hi friends. For this month’s Draw A Bird day, I painted an osprey portrait. When on vacation, we enjoy watching osprey fly over the ocean looking for big fish. Even better is when you see them flying away with their tasty meal (although a feel a little bad for the fish). We also like to see another type of osprey practicing maneuvers up and down the beach, as you will see in the last picture below.
Charlie, the founder of Doodlewash and World Watercolor Month (WWCM), has given us thought-provoking prompts this year for WWCM, and here are my interpretations for the first week. These paintings are not meant to be masterpieces. The point is to simply enjoy the process of painting and not worry about the end product so much.
World Watercolor Month is an annual global charitable event featuring the ultimate challenge of 31 Watercolors in 31 days. Artists around the globe come together to paint the world with beautiful watercolor and help raise awareness for arts education to get art supplies for kids who need them. If you want to know more or help deserving children obtain art supplies, please check out the official WWCM website here. See you next week with a recap of week 2. Stay safe out there!

Good for you for doing the WWM challenge! It looks like you enjoyed your focus on watercolor. Did you use a separate journal for these?
Hi Fay! I kind of made my own “crude” journal for this month’s prompts, held together by a simple binder ring. Thanks for asking, and be well!
All interesting paintings! Love the blue one in particular!
Thanks, Julie! It is one of my favorites, too!
