Painting the Week of Changing Colors

This week the leaves outside began to change from their usual green to more vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red. For my calendar painting, I changed from my usual method of watercolor paints to watercolor crayons. They are a lot like watercolor pencils, and I liked the added structure they brought.

A little water brushed on top made the crayon lines blur into each other. The more water added, the less pronounced the lines.

I wanted to make my colored tree mirror the real trees outside, so I mixed in some regular yellow watercolor paint.

The finished picture was a mix of all the colors--

Happy painting! ~Megan
