Crayola Fun

Get a pen, a pad of paper, and some Crayola markers! For instant fun, just add WATER!
Here are some sketches I've been doing to experiment with elementary school supplies. It is quite wonderful to discover that you can make cool art with cheapo supplies. I just used a ball point pen and Crayola washable makers. No Faber-Castell or Prismacolor here.

The markers work kind of like watercolors, only they are slightly more permanent. They are not as workable, but it's better than watercolor pencils in my opinion. It's also super simple if you want to do any sketching on location.

Look at these happy people! Do you know why they are happy? They had a beautiful portrait done of their baby son, and they loved it! What a great present for Christmas or birthdays portraits can be.
