Hobe Sound Beach Umbrellas Study

Sometimes I do a small study in watercolor crayon and marker pen before the larger painting. This is only 6×8 on “Fluid” Watercolor paper 140 lb., which comes in a block of 15 sheets. The watercolor crayons are made by Caran D’Ache and mine is a set of 40 and the pens are Faber Castell with the brush tip.

The great thing for me is that the watercolor crayons are similar to pastels and I just love the way you can scribble with them, then wet them down and scribble some more.
