July is #WorldWatercolorMonth

July is World Watercolor Month thanks to the efforts of the incomparable Charlie O’Shields. I won’t be participating daily due to other commitments and my sore shoulder, but I encourage artists to join the fun and non-artists to give it a try.

 

There are no rules to this challenge save for using some sort of water-media to make your art. I know people who want to use this challenge to practice certain subjects, but I’m not that organized, so I’ll just paint whatever strikes my fancy.

This is an attempt at capturing the wild and dry landscape of Big Bend National Park. You can tell someone (me…) is a little rusty at landscapes. Rough outline of rock structures drawn with 2B graphite. Painted with Sennelier travel watercolors on 140lb Strathmore Visual Journal.
