caran d'ache watersoluble crayons

This is an experiment using Caran D'ache neocolor II watersoluble crayons on canvas pad 6x9in.It works fine on this support only that you need a fine brush and little water but carefully cover all areas. My mistake was to use a plastic brush too big for the job and loaded with water.The crayons have very strong pigment and only a little dot can make a mark by adding water.

autumn sycamore leaves in a vase

watercolor pencils on Bristol board white pad 9x12in.

I am not satisfied with these last pieces as they loose their fuzziness and become too obvious for the realistic shapes.Also the colors are too intense instead of being diffuse.I might wish to redo the geranium pot and sycamore leaves at a more stylized level.
