    July is World Watercolor Month. DoodleWash is holding a 30 day watercolor challenge for July, so lets join in!

    You can participate daily with their challenge, and/or submit one larger artwork to our ArtistCommunity! Check out their list of prompts for daily sketches.

    If you don’t paint in watercolor, I have sneakily opened up this month’s theme to “water and color”. You might like to paint a scene featuring water, or something with bright and vivid colors! We like to keep our options open.

    ALT Theme: Edgar Degas – suggested by u/thethinkersrock (Cassandra Hall) on Reddit

    To participate:

    Make an artwork tying into the theme above. Tell us about it! Submit here with links to your artwork; a photo on instagram, a video, a website… however you like to publish your art. Use #artistcommunity hashtag whenever possible.

    Try to submit your artwork by the last day of July, ideally earlier if possible. This lets other members show off your art, and hopefully you will show theirs as well.

    To Collaborate:

    If you like to collaborate, consider doing a shoutout to someone else who has participated in this challenge. If you do, let them know as I’m sure it’ll make their day.

    If you want to do a shoutout video, post a video first week of July – that gives everyone time to submit their challenge artwork and films. If you aren’t on YouTube yet, shout-outs on social media like Instagram is another great option.


    You don’t have to, but do please consider working towards a cause. There are many environmental groups working to raise awareness for endangered marine life because of effects such as global warming and pollution. If you sell your artwork/prints, consider donating some or all of the profits to your chosen charity. For example, I donate 10% profits on all prints to charity. If you aren’t selling yet, donating your original artwork to a charity auction is a great way to gain exposure and help the cause.
