Crayon, Pastel, Chalk

Dream art in crayon pastel and chalk. Quite a few of these pieces were done with what Sanford calls "plastic markers"--nothing like felt markers; they're hard crayons with a plastic base/binder, instead of wax or oil, so they erase like pencils! Very handy for serious artists. Plus, they're lightfast (Crayolas aren't).

RELATED TOPICS: Other media: paintings - watercolor and silk-dyeing - pencil and charcoal - photocollages and altered photos - pure digital art - ink - felt pen and colored inks - comics - sculpture - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
