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
