Day 195 (Fri july 14) more watercolor crayons

Using these Caran d’Ache watercolor crayons

for the second time… they are so fun!! Obviously I haven’t quite figured them out yet, but I will keep playing with them.

First I drew an image… they spritzed water over the surface. See how the colors just flowed immediately??

 

 

Then I used a brush to move it around a bit, and after it dried I used more crayon (oh my goodness you can crayon white right on top of the colors!!!!) and a little more wet paintbrush and a little more crayon scribbling… well I couldn’t really tell when I was finished and felt like that might go on for a while, so I just stopped. I can imagine some gorgeous simple backgrounds with these things. And I’ve read that both these and their watercolor pencils have great lightfast ratings.
