Charlie O’Shields, creator of Doodlewash®, is the founder of World Watercolor Month. His love of art led to the creation of a blog and a social artist movement that dedicates itself to promote and connect watercolor artists all over the world. Amazingly, the blog features hundreds of artists sketching and painting with watercolor on all seven continents. According to Charlie, “There’s something magical about watercolor, and it’s my passion to bring all types of watercolor artists together to celebrate each other’s work and the medium we all love!”

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed World Watercolor Month to be observed annually beginning in 2016
