While in my booth at the Portland Body Mind Spirit Expo on April 5, I started painting the “Sweet Victory” mandala using watercolor pencils & crayons. I have two ways I use w/c pencils.
- If I have a large enough area to fill, I color it in using the w/c pencil or crayon as a normal pencil or crayon. Then I wet a brush and then use the brush to ‘convert’ the dry pencil into watercolor paint. (You’ll see an example or two in the slide show)
- For smaller, difficult areas to fill, I take a wet brush, dab it on the tip of my pencil/crayon, and then brush the paint onto the paper.
Here’s the slideshow of my progress that day.
BTW…this mandala is in the “Enlighten-Up” Mandala Coloring book.
