This mixed media uses watercolor, acid free sketchbook paper and archival black artist's crayon.

The paper is a standard frame size so you can easily buy a kit on line at DickBlick.com or even on Etsy.

This painting began with a black and white drawing and then I developed it with alternating layers of watercolor and crayon.

The technique I use is archival and will not smudge easily like charcoal and pastel.  It is very resistant to fade although you should never hang a watercolor in direct light from a window unless the light is muted.  Glass really helps to preserve color and will keep the drawing fresher.

I use archival white and black crayons to make these drawings. They are very permanent and they won't smudge or rub off unless you really rough the drawings up.
