Doodlewash

Dreaming Zebra




Doodlewash” started out as the personal journal of Charlie O’Shields.  Now he invites others to join him on his watercolor journey. 

 

He believes that watercolor sketching and painting is just plain fun and he thinks that everyone who feels the urge should give it a try, without worrying about rules or results.  Whether you want to paint outdoors (in plein air), urban sketch, work from a photo at home (with a lovely glass of wine!), or just create something entirely from your own imagination, it’s all a doodle wash!  Do it!  And, have fun!


The Dreaming Zebra® Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit encouraging children to embrace their individuality, to express themselves creatively, and follow their artistic dreams.
