using watersoluble crayons/pencils




This is a bird painting.  I used watercolor pencils for the bird and then smudged it with a damp Q-tip.  The color splotches were made with watercolor pencils and water soluble crayons.  There are other collage elements and marker designs added.

This looks so spontaneous and fun. The collage elements really make it whimsical. I think it must be working with kids that keeps your outlook so fresh.
