I drew a handful of pumpkins with crayons in order to do a “Crayon Resist”.
The word resist is used to describe the action in which two materials repel each other. So, basically the paint will not stick to the crayon. The paint ‘resists’ the waxy crayon.
Here are a number of photos to show the drawing steps that I used:
As you can see; I am just doing a gentle colorful drawing of the pumpkins,
adding a lot of oranges and yellows.
As you follow the photos you can see that I added some brown watercolor paint
over the bottom of the drawing to represent the dirt that the straw and pumpkins are sitting on.
And after painting I used a paper towel to rub some of it off.
Then I added a blue paint for the sky…painting over the entire pumpkins too.
So where the crayon didn’t go on the paper some blue paint stuck.
But, as I rubbed it off a lot of the paint simply blended in.
And this is the finished painting crayon resist.
And now I am going to go in and add some black markers…just for fun.
