World Watercolor Month 2022

July is World Watercolor Month!     

To recognize and celebrate WORLD WATERCOLOR MONTH, paint one, some, or all of the Doodlewash July daily prompts.   In early August, we will randomly select 10 winners for some amazing prizes!

–> Make sure to include #WWM2022 in your post in the Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group.

If you’ve never heard of Doodlewash, check them out.   It’s fun to interpret the prompts and create daily art.   One of our awesome sponsors, Angela Fehr, created the prompts for this special month.


What are the 10 prizes for 10 random winners?    

  • Dr. Ph Martin’s  Hydrus Liquid Watercolor set 1:  Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor is lightfast, transparent, fine art quality watercolor in a glass bottle. This liquid product delivers the same brilliance and permanency as traditional tube watercolors. Made from the finest artist pigments, Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor can be blended and intermixed while still maintaining the transparency and luminosity of the colors. Each set comes in a tray that doubles as a mixing palette and bottle holder, with space for a water cup and twelve individual mixing wells. Great for use in technical, calligraphy, fountain pens, and in airbrushes. Each set includes 12 different colors in 1.0 oz (30 ml) glass bottles with droppers and a custom mixing palette.

  • Ksenia Annis is offering lifetime access to a Learn to paint with Ksenia Annis online course!  The winner may choose any one of the following courses:
    • From Zero to Watercolor Hero
    • Painterly Pet Portraits
    • Paint like the Masters
    • Impressionism with Gouache
    • Experimental Watercolor on non-paper Surfaces
  • Watercolor premium box by Sketchbox
    • This box features a custom watercolor palette by Kuretake Zig. This 12-color palette is inspired by traditional watercolor painters with a modern twist with a mix of opaque and transparent colors. The palette also includes a metallic for shimmery effects. This box also includes a Color Sparx watercolor powder in wisteria which offers a rich, multi-dimensional pigment. You can mix this powder with water to use as a traditional watercolor or sprinkle it on a wet surface for a blooming effect. We also included two Archer & Olive Acrylograph pens in white and Navy. These .7mm water-based acrylic pens are great for creating outlines and contrast, and their opaque ink dilutes well in water. To outline your drawings we included a Koh-I-Noor Toison d’Or graphite pencil with a soft B lead. This pencil is also great for adding shadows. Because Plein Air is often done on the go, we included a Kuretake Zig BrusH20 Petit which makes for the perfect travel brush. Finally, our surface this month is a custom Hahnemuhle Toned Watercolor paper pad (200 GSM, 15 sheets). This absorbent, light grey pad offers a contrasting mid-tone to the materials in this month’s box.
  • QoR 12 half-pan watercolor set: Made using an exclusive binder that provides more pigment with every stroke, QoR Modern Watercolors have all the subtlety, transparency, and flow of a great traditional watercolor, yet the colors embody the fire and vibrance of the best acrylic or oil paint even after drying.

  • Arches 140 lb cold press sketchbook (I made by cutting a 9 x 12 inch pad. Info here.)  3 winners will each receive a 12-page sketchbook.  You can also paint on both sides of the paper!
  • Throughout the month, there will be pop-up giveaways of QoR watercolor sample dot cards
