Painting Challenge: Bold Art!

Let’s go bold this week.   Any subject, but make it lively, vivid, and bursting with bold colors!  Let’s fill our world with bright, bold art!

Paint bold art.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #boldart

Deadline August 5, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

I love bold colors.   I have worn a bright red suit to a high stakes corporate banking meeting.  Why wear muted blues and greys?  Be bold!  Be you!


What is the prize?   

The Artist Life is our generous sponsor this week.  It is a woman-owned business in California and  I love their vision

Born amid existential reflection, The Artist Life is an affirmation of all we desire for our lives
    • Be authentic. You define you.
    • Live by your own expectations.
    • Express yourself – in your art, your lifestyle, and your appearance.
    • Romanticize your life, and then live it.


Here are the goodies they’ve contributed for one random winner this week:

Pink travel art purse

Morandi-inspired watercolor set

Sable travel brush set










The Artist Life has also given our watercolor group a special 15% discount code:  DZWC15TAL

They have something I must order:  an artist’s glove.  This keeps oils on your hand from getting on your watercolor paper when sketching or painting.

If you missed the World Watercolor Month challenge, check it out.  It is throughout the month of July!  Lots of awesome prizes from our sponsors!
