Crayola Washable Markers not Just for Kids
I used Crayola washable markers I picked up at the grocery store for this drawing. They're sort of fun in that I can lift the color when I've over done and lost the light of the paper, which I did. I don't always know when to stop. Trying to perfect the forms, the composition, the color is a problem.
I published two photos of the drawing to show the color difference with a flash and without a flash. The warmer of the two is more accurate (without a flash), but the cooler photograph is a cooler photograph. Shows us not to trust the pictures of paintings we see in books. It's better to see them up close and personal in the museums.
