You can also use the LMW Facebook group to share your artwork in the daily share threads that are posted along with the prompt topic.

About the weekly prompts and monthly challenge theme

The prompts are weekly so you have no pressure in doing one everyday. You may create more than one watercolor illustration pertaining to the weekly prompt. The 2018 January watercolor prompts has the monthly theme of “Shapes”.

Think about how you can incorporate the subject with basic techniques like blending, layering etc. A tutorial will soon follow and you can be inspired by the same.

For inspiration, please refer my Watercolor Inspiration board on Pinterest. I will be pinning ideas related to the themes I put up regularly.

The perks?

  • Improve your skills in watercolour and get inspired to create with all the different ideas you see out there.
  • WIN an Amazon gift card worth $15 every month. I will pick one winner every month. This is sponsored by me and not by Amazon or anyone else.
