Just gorgeous as all of your stuff!  Do you put down the crayon first and then the watercolor over top?  I'm curious about watercolor and crayon both being used!

My method of coloring my works is to paint it in watercolor first and then put crayon over the watercolored part. It really wouldn't be possible the other way around as the wax of the crayon would resist the watercoloring. Smiley

Thanks! I really like adding the crayon to the watercolor because it brings out the texture in the paper. It really depends on the paper, however. I got one brand and won't use it anymore because it doesn't give me a favorable effect.
