Today I was painting and drawing, and I found out that Oil pastels and watercolor paints make a great team. I feel like there are so many new possibilities for my sketchbook! Oil pastels can be a great resist for watercolors, and that watercolors can fill in the gaps in pastel drawings. So, here is generally how to do it.
Supplies:

Oil Pastels, Watercolor Paints, small and large paintbrush, waterproof pen, water soluble pen, pencil.

You can see that using the same color sets the pastel off a bit, and using a contrasting color sets it off a lot.

Pencil Sketch (because I won't be able to see what I'm doing with the white pastel)

put down some waterproof ink since it can't go over the resist

fill in the pastel resist

And then this gets to be less of a tutorial, because I just did a painting.
Here is a tiny sketch that shows how well they work together.

Anyway, I hope that's helpful.
