Doodle(s)wash: 7/18-7/20

I was at work when I got the phone call from the kids that the uninvited guests decided to have some people over and that they were even yelling at the dogs to shut up and the kids to go play outside. Let’s just say I immediately left work came home and cleared out my house. No, I wasn’t polite. No, I wasn’t forgiving. No, I didn’t care if they had to sleep outside in the rain (especially since that’s where they wanted the kids to go out and play in). I’m not even worried about what my husband will do. Then the kids and I got the house clean, dinner started for this evening and some peace and quiet. Enough so that I had so much fun painting and will be working on Fenton’s Friday.


Prompt: Jungle-I ran out of room but it’s supposed to be a toucan.
Prompt: Jungle-I wanted to paint something that was both majestic and simple.
Prompt: Rainy Day-When I think if rainy day the first image that came to mind was Georgie from the movie IT.
Prompt: Rainy Day-I had all that paint on my palette from the gorilla and though this would be a fun piece. I think it kind of has a, ‘Courage the Cowardly Dog’ feeling to it.
Prompt: Wet and Dry-I loathed this prompt. I racked my brain and came up with two options. I used the wet/dry vac for the doodle part for today’s prompt.
Prompt: Wet and Dry-After the wet/dry vac doodle the only other thing that I could thing of was a frog. Some species can live on both land and water. Not to happy with this little guy but not so much that I would throw it away.

 

Doodle(s)wash: 7/10-7/11

It seems like all I’m doing lately is catching up. I’m getting caught up (somewhat) in my writing lectures and now I’m caught up on my doodle(s)washes. I wanted to keep in more of a loose doodle aesthetic rather than worrying about following the lines. Hope I pulled it off. (HEY! WP is letting me do a gallery!

Doodle(s)wash: 7/9

Today has felt like an entire day of climbing mountains. Work…enough said there, dinner, then bandaging up a kid that didn’t even belong to me. He was closer to his house but bled a half a block to myself. Lots of peroxide and one huge band-aid later he was good as new.


Doodle(s)wash: 7/8

This was a frustrating prompt. Not that the actual prompt was the issue but the process. I actually threw one painting away and I was only halfway done with it. I’m trying to learn not rely too much on my pens and focus more on painting details.


Prompt Word: Flying things

A simple one line and dots kite for the doodle portion.
I was working on lightning bugs for flying things. I wish I could make it look more majestic.

Doodle(s)wash: 7/7

I decided that I would doodlewash outside my comfort zone. I rarely paint animals and try to choose subjects that would be SUPER easy for the confident watercolorist which actually takes me sometimes over an hour. Today, I thought I would try painting people. I NEVER do that and was quite surprised with the outcome. It was actually exhilarating to see that I didn’t completely butcher the subject.


Prompt: Playing Games

Hopscotch was a childhood game that us girls would play for hours.
Those men that I see playing chess in the park is so mesmerizing. Movements so quiet and quick all while looking so serious. What are their stories and who taught them to play?

 

Doodle(s)wash: 7/6

Trying not to fall behind but the early busy mornings are kicking my butt. Today’s prompt brought back some happy memories and before I knew it I had everything completed. Side note-creating the doodles with one line has given me a style that I’ve come to really enjoy. The watercolor, I’m still needing to work on. Maybe some watercolor courses? Oh, shoot! I need to sign into my writing course. I’m going to take a nap after this instead.


Prompt: Simple Things

My father had a hammock when I was growing up. I would curl up with him and we both would sway from side to side soaking up the sun. That was one of the simple things I took for granted.
What could be more simple than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? My father made the best. I use the same ingredients that he did (including the onions) but they never taste like his used to.

 

Doodle(s)wash and Anxiety: 7/3

I don’t know what happened to me today. I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items but that was a mistake on my part. I should’ve known better. Our town is having its firework show tonight, farmers market (right now), and two bands. This only meant that EVERYONE was at the same store grabbing things. I made it to self-checkout when I felt tingly all over, then shakey. My mouth started to go dry. This meant I had an anxiety attack coming on. I made it to the car when someone started to honk at me to move out. I covered my ears and closed my eyes giving me a chance to focus on my breathing. I was able to come home and curled up in the chair suddenly feeling exhausted. Painting and doodling really helped me relax. My husband has graciously said that he will take our son to see the firework show giving me a chance to stay home with the dogs.


Prompt Word: Primary Colors

Crayons representing red, blue, and yellow.
How about a pretty colored fish?

Doodle(s)wash: June to July and the Damn Humidity!

I know, I am SUPER behind on a lot of stuff. Catching up slowly is what I do best. I only wish that I could control the humidity. The paper buckled and soaked up all the water. Even when working quickly it was difficult. Maybe I should take up using markers instead? And SUPER irritated with WP not creating my gallery of images. GRR.


6/30 Party
When I think of party the image of balloons on mailboxes came to mind.
7/1 Sunny Days
I tried a new concept. It didn’t turn out like I wanted but happy with my attempt.
7/2 Delicious Foods
I think being on a diet everything looks delicious. Pie it is.

 

Doodle(s)wash: 6/29

I was super excited about today’s prompt simply because I could put a steampunk spin on it. Absolutely adore all things steampunk and I think a parasol (in place of today’s prompt) is in that alley. Now I’m off to try and see if I can stay within my points for a dinner out with the family. Fingers crossed I can stay away from the bread basket.


Prompt: Umbrella
