A Month of Pumpkins Day 20

This painting was done with Caran D'Ache Neocolor Watercolor Crayons. I bought a few about a year ago and this is the first time I've used them. Interesting. If you love watercolor but hate the lack of control, you might like these because you basically color and then blur it with your paintbrush but you don't have to use puddles of water. I did add some regular watercolor to darken my twig. Now I've to go buy some more colors. :)

I like this, and I am really impressed that you have kept this project up. I am also impressed you are using a medium you are not use too! Wish I had your talent and dedication!!

Nice one, Kathy. I've used my watercolor pencils for some fun paintings. Still love those puddles though!

Thanks Missy!
Carol, I prefer puddles, too, but I also enjoyed making squiggly lines with these watercolor crayons. The color is very rich. Maybe next time I'll combine both?
