Playing Around with Water

Lotus Flower
4" x 5" colored pencil & wax pastel on paper

About a month ago, I ordered a set of Neocolor II wax pastels as well as some colourfix paper, neither of which I had worked on before. The Neocolor II pastels are watersoluble wax crayons and colourfix (for those who don't already know) is a pastel and "multimedia Artist's paper". Anyway, what with going out-of-town 6 times in the last 5 weeks, I just now got around to playing with the new materials. It's going to take some more getting used to, but I do love how the Neocolors "pop" when you add water. I guess it is fitting that my first subject with the watersoluble colors is a water scene.
