About Fine Art Contest

Fine Art Contest Details

Every artist feels like getting away from it all sometimes! Being the visual people that we are, we pack supplies along to work on something relaxing, even capture highlights from our trip. Documenting a vacation by keeping an artist’s journal is the perfect way to enjoy the trip and focus on landmarks, vistas, and experiences, or even plein air paint along the way...

Most of us artists are bad about bringing the entire kitchen sink when it comes to packing supplies for our journey. Once we get there, then it’s the debate on what to use, which wastes valuable working time— then trying to find space to lay everything out to work, and finding you don’t even use HALF of what you have carted along...

Watercolor is the ultimate way to pack lightly no matter where your dream trip takes you, and still give you a full range of colors to work with… Watercolor paper, a set of watercolor pans, a brush or two, pencil for sketching, and water are all that’s needed! Even a backpacking hiker has room for that on the trail...

What To Submit & What To Paint! The Themes of Inspiration

Create & submit your watercolor artwork based on 1 or all of the below ideas/themes:

Need Inspiration?

We provided some thoughts of where we would like to be right now creating art. Some of us have been to one of the places but all of us would love to go! Maybe you have been to one of these places and created your watercolor work of art? Submit your watercolor art on where you have been, where you are dreaming to go and what inspiring scenes you may encountered or found along your travels that inspired your work.
