These little crayon and watercolor drawings were my salvation whilst building my new blog. There is something just so magical about the crayon and watercolor.
It really makes me feel and make art like a kid. The Caran d'Ache Neocolor 1 crayons are wax just like Crayolas but creamier. I am now a crayon snob :).
So, you know about this, right? You make a crayon drawing and then go into it with the watercolors and the crayon marks act as a resist to the watercolor.
I'm using my Strathmore Visual Journaling watercolor here. Such great paper, it holds the color very well. I squirt water onto my watercolors and let them sit a while.
These are such fun to do. I used my Sakura watercolor kit with the crayons. Everything was just sitting there waiting for me when I was ready to take a break from HTML hell!
If you don't have fancy-pants art supplies, use your Crayolas and a cheap-o paint set. Here's a video link to my YouTube video, Juicy Watercolors to get you started. Enjoy! and come visit me.
