My drawing and painting life
While I was ill last week, something nice happened…. and I love to tell you what:
I’ve been doodlewashed!
You will ask me: WHAT?? What happened? Well, I had my first guest blogpost – and it was on the wonderful blog site called “Doodlewash”. YEAH!
The site is hosted by Charlie O’Shields. Simply put: he posts a lot of watercolor paintings, both his own and from other watercolorists. He loves making watercolor paintings himself. He’s challenging himself to do a watercolor each day. And hopes to inspire as many people as possible to start making watercolors too. And this seems to work.
He’s coined the phrase ‘doodlewash’. A doodlewash is: “Anything one creates that involves a drop of water to create beautiful washes of color and/or ink: I grabbed my brush and made a new doodlewash.”
People have begun adding to the dictionary of doodlewashes. A doodlewasher for instance is :
An as you may have gathered by now, ‘I’ve been doodlewashed’ can mean: I have a guest blog on the website Doodlewash”. This dictionary probably grows by the week, so you’d better check it out on his blog.
Guest blogs, better known as: ‘guest doodlewashers’
The site accepts or invites guest blogposts of other people making watercolors, people who delight in splashing watercolor around…. People do watercolor in so many different ways. Seeing so many different kinds of watercolors together is amazing! An added bonus are Charlies own blogposts. I love his writing style, his humor.
When I stumbled upon the Doodlewash blog the other day, we started a conversation on Charlies challenge and I found his mission really resonated with me. One thing led to another. And now my guest doodlewash is up! I love the layout, how Charlie out everything on the page.
PS Having been ill all week I haven’t done much arting (baby steps some days though), let alone newly written blogposts. I feel a lot better now – so I hope to bring you up to speed about day 80 to 90 and about my plans for December soon.
