Watch how I create cool effects with crayons!

Happy Sunday! I’m working in my sketchbook with crayons and thought I’d share the cool effects I’m getting. I start by making a simple pattern.

Check this out…

What I love about crayons is that you can alter the color with layers of other colors. Plus, scratching through the crayon creates richness. My sketchbook page can almost resemble an oil painting!

What are you doing in your sketchbooks? Let me know in the comments.

On this week’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast, I’m with artist Anna Kincaide, who I discovered on Instagram. I first noticed her art, but her story drew me in. Despite previous successes, one less successful show made her question her work and process. It was a challenging period to navigate, but she learned so much about herself and her purpose. Join me for this inspiring story coming this Wednesday! Click here to subscribe to the Art2Life Podcast and catch up on past episodes, too!

Have an awesome day!
