Fun with crayons

I’ve really been enjoying using the neocolor II watersoluble crayons – previously they were part of my ‘touching up’ battery of stuff to deploy at the end of a painting when (OK, it happens) things haven’t gone according to plan.But I have some new work for Somerset ArtWeeks ( an alarmingly short time hence) where I chose them from the beginning for their vibrant, lively look, and they seem to work well with more ‘man-made’ shapes.

The sailing boats were at a local regatta at Durleigh, while the other two were based on architecture at the stunning Wells Cathedral. The large picture I fancifully call ‘Forest of Stone’ because the tall column and slimmer pillars reminded me of a spreading tree.
