Black Crayon + Water Colors

March 4, 2011

 "Rapunzel Fairy" by Camille and "Attack of the Volcano Monkeys" by Noah (inspired by one of his favorite books). 

Our weekend weather forecast looks pretty dreary, so I am looking forward to watching this with the kids, baking hamantaschen, attending a local production of Annie, playing Mastermind (anyone remember that original game box? read this), napping, reading and have a nice lazy weekend. Hope your weekend is also relaxing with some bursts of color and interest! If you've never tried drawing with a black crayon and adding watercolors, you should try it.

love this art idea as well.

I totally remember that Mastermind box. I played that game a lot with my dad. I'm so glad you mentioned it, I need to go find one! And that article about the cover shot sealed the deal.

I can't believe I never thought of using a BLACK crayon instead of white with watercolors.
For Goodness Sake -- thank you!

Love the water colors. Your weekend sounds perfect. It is going to rain here too. Thankfully, we have German school tomorrow where the children will celebrate carnival and a birthday party to attend. Then we have a grown ups party at my husbands boss house.

Such wonderful painting/drawings... We have some art on our list this weekend. I will have to pull out the black crayon.
Have a great weekend.
