Also if you want to see beautifully economical use of watercolour and drawing visit Ben’s blog at Bonelab. I’ve seen his work for real when Ben visited a few weeks back and it is even more captivating than the photos here. Best, Nicholas.

Soluble NeocolorII crayons on white paper. April 2013.

This is one of a couple of drawings I made recently using some colours new to my NeocolorII range of soluble crayons. I wanted to work some subtle colour variations into different areas and I deliberately didn’t introduce any coloured pencil or graphite into it, so it does look a bit different to some of my recent drawings.
