I wanted to try the Neocolor II watersoluble crayons as an underpainting for colored pencil. I have a small set so I might be more picky in the colors I would select. I chose the blue because it is the complement for orange and would make a nice shadow color.
The rest of the colors chosen were analogous to the finished color. As I was working I learned you can put more Neocolor over the top of the cp which helped alot. And I used a stiff bristle brush to scrub in the colors.
In this first picture the dark background has black Neocolor, Tuscan Red, Dark Green, and Indigo Blue applied. I repeated the process a couple of times as I smushed in the color with the brush.
The second picture is the finished product. I must say I was pleased with the Neocolors and the Pastelboard (my first time for both).
