This is a mixed media painting I did before eating dinner. I started out drawing in crayola crayon then I used crayola markers with water over the crayon. I smoothed here and there then added extra layers of crayon under marker until I was satisfied.
The smooth crayon under layer makes working with markers very easy. Shading is easier as is covering up mistakes. I also like the texture it makes where marker stains the paper but not the crayon. I discovered it’s best to use yellow with green marker or blue marker with yellow in order to get the desired result of green. It’s been fun experimenting with the two mediums.
Flowers Before Dinner is the start of my second sketch diary which has been dedicated to flowers of all kinds.
