Oil and Water DO Mix

Mixed media, that is.

We drew on white watercolor paper with a white oil pastel. It was a little tricky for the kids to draw since they couldn't see too well what they had drawn. But it was a fun challenge.

The key to a successful painting is a bold, heavy application of oil crayon. Fifi drew a house. I drew circles on top of Vance's scrawls.

Then, like magic, the watercolor paint unveiled the white drawings.
