2022 is the fifth year of Direct Watercolor Challenge – a challenge that Marc Taro Holmes ideated and both he and I have conducted+participated in. Marc and I will co-host the #directwatercolor2022 on Facebook. Like every year, the idea is for all of us who partake in the challenge to do 30 direct watercolors in 30 days of June i.e. watercolor paintings without underlying drawing. Each of us has a different goal for venturing on this journey – for me, it is about
- study diminishing light repeatedly over 30 days
- In addition to painting, I also have a research project, that I invite you to participate in.
We do not monitor the group outside of June 1 – June 30 timeline. The effort while enjoyable, is sustainable for a month only. Marc and I make all final admin decisions. There are no second chances for hatred & rudeness. Mature verbal confrontation is welcome and heard. Putting down someone gets one auto-boot with no way back in.
