Painting Challenge: Joyful Art

This week is all about sharing joy.

Paint joyful art.     

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

Deadline June 24, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

It brings me joy to slap paint on paper.  Even if it doesn’t turn out how I envisioned, I have pretty colors on the paper.   Joyful art is why I paint.   🙂
So this week…. paint whatever brings you joy.  Bright colors are joyful to me… so I love to paint bright, happy flowers!   Quick, or detailed… both bring me joy!
This week’s challenge is sponsored by Kristy Rice.  Wait until you see what the prize is… but before we get there, check out some of her books.  They are so colorful and fun!   And joyful!

This one is coming out in October 2022.  You can pre-order it.  I can’t wait to get this book!


What is the prize?   

One of the most joyful people I know is Kristy Rice.   If you haven’t watched any of her YouTube tutorials, I encourage you to put that high on your priority watch list!  She is simply joyful, and it comes through with her art. She is so encouraging:  Kristy Rice YouTube channel.
Kristy has generously contributed 5 sets of her NEW watercolor palette which is launching next week!   Five random winners will get a pouch, brush set, and 12 half-pan watercolor set!
