Step-by-Step Watersoluble Crayons

And for a break from the difficulties of Yupo, back to normal watercolour paper for some nice cheerful loose watercolour flowers!  Here's a step-by-step...

Step 1  I drew some bold flowers on bigger-than-A4 paper, using just a couple of colours - quite scribbly....

 Step 2  I added plenty of water using a large round watercolour brush. Also added some spatter with a smaller brush....


Step 3  I tidied up the edges and added definition with watersoluble pencils into the wet paper.


Step 4 - I could have left it like that but it looked a bit lacking so I decided to write on it to make it a journal page.
