Day 108: Umbrellas and flowers

Here are two more of my wax crayon/watercolor paintings.  The vividness of the wax color is arresting.  I love watching watercolor as it moves and has a life of its  own.  They call it "bloom" when the paint dissolves and spreads.  I painted the umbrella while sitting at Virginia Beach last week.

  1. Using wax color over the watercolor in your umbrella drawing makes the umbrella look like a different layer from the background. Nice effect!
