20 x 30 cm Watercolor Crayons and Watercolor on Arches 140 WCP
I am back in the saddle again and decided to jump in at the last minute to try the latest challenge from Karin Jurick - drawing from a photo of a statue.
I used 3 Caran dAche watercolor crayons to make the drawing: Royal Blue, Bordeaux Red and Golden Ochre. Then I used a brush full of water and blended these colors to define my shadow areas. While it was still wet I dropped in some regular watercolor (yellow ochre, ultramarine blue and permanent rose) to finish it off. My friend Hillary Miller sent the crayons to me as a surprise after I admired some drawings she had done with them.
These crayons are such a joy to work with! I can't wait to take them with me to my life study group next week!
