  I am happy to have been invited to join this new watercolour wash challenge. The participating artists Olivia Quintin ,  Christy Lemp , Vandy Massey , Lori Bentley , Lorraine BrownIsabella Kramer and Jane Minter will post a watercolour wash each week throughout the year . In addition each month there will be a open monthly challenge for everyone to join in with is the link to JANUARY,S CHALLENGE - "washes with sponges " ... we hope you join us .

On a personal note I wish my fellow bloggers and readers a very creative and  Happy New Year .

I'm currently enjoying working with my pencils and don't seem to be getting to my watercolours, however, I will follow this with interest ready for when I pick up my brushes again. ;-)
