Welcome to the AMAZING Beautiful Watercolors group!!! We can now also be found on Facebook!! Join us for more posts and discussions! Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/beautifulwatercolors
This group is for watercolor artwork only; created by you from paint and water on your table and a brush in your hand. I will only accept beautiful, inspiring paintings...those which uplift the viewer. No dark or dreary.
You may submit any theme as long as it's:
1. Family-friendly (no nudity, sexuality, violence, skulls, politics, etc)
2. No words or written messages on the artwork (unless part of the subject being painted)
3. No digital painting or digitally-altered photographs. Nothing digital.
4. The use of gouache, pen and ink, acrylic or other mediums within the watercolor painting MUST stay as just a highlight and is up to my discretion.
5. No abstract/patterns. Subject must be identifiable without a doubt.
We want to promote each other's works so check the discussion tab for threads for that purpose. Liking, Favoriting, Commenting, Sharing on Social Media is strongly encouraged and very appreciated!
You may upload one image per day.
WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT ARTIST ~ featured the week of 11-27-21 ~ Olivia Checiu is chosen as the new Weekly Spotlight Artist!!! Joining FAA in 2019, Olivia says, 'I've drawn, colored or painted for as long as I can remember. As a teenager I went to an arts high-school and later studied architecture at the University. I never actually studied watercolor painting in all my school years, so I'm basically a self-taught watercolorist since 2019.' A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to her!!!

HOMEPAGE SPECIAL FEATURE ARTIST ~ featured December 2021 ~ is Hanne Lore Koehler!!!! Born in Aachen, Germany, and growing up in Canada, her vibrant paintings 'reflect [her] life: enriched with excitement as well as quiet times. [Her] fascination with capturing a flash of movement in a motionless art form is evident in [her] sports paintings and energetic portraits. Moments of tenderness are reflected in [her] still life art, gardens and landscapes. Humor and silliness reflect in [her] fantasy illustrations.' Here is her GORGEOUS and perfectly done, FIRST PLACE win, 'Drawn to the Sun':
