Fourth Week Recap of World Watercolor Month

Charlie, the founder of Doodlewash and World Watercolor Month, has given us thought-provoking prompts this year; these are my interpretations for the fourth week. The 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.

Valuable - Love/Relationships
Valuable – Love/Relationships

I’m grateful to have such a wonderful quarantine partner, and I miss being with so many other family members and friends.

Alone - Male Betta Fish
Alone – Male Betta Fish

Evidently, male Bettas need to be kept apart or they become aggressive and fight. My niece, Katie, has a Betta named Dave πŸ™‚

Abundance – Corn

Generally, we have an abundance of corn in Ohio by now, but because of an extremely wet spring, corn is more precious this year. Freshly picked corn on the cob is a summertime treat!

Sharp - Pocket Knife
Sharp – Pocket Knife

As a kid, it seemed like my Dad’s pocket knife was magic. He could make or fix just about everything with it!

Favorite Song - Anything by The Monkees
Favorite Song – Anything by The Monkees

You probably already know how much I enjoy The Monkees and their music. This is their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Shine - Light Bulb
Shine – Light Bulb

Our neighbors have a string of Edison light bulbs on their deck, and they look so festive at night!

Complementary - Colors
Complementary – Colors

Complementary colors, like blue and orange, when placed side by side, create a pleasing contrast and enhance each other. When mixed, they cancel each other out and make a neutral color.

There are only three days left of the WWCM celebration. Thanks for stopping by, and please stay safe!
