: Pastel and Crayola Crayon

I had a dream last night that I painted a mixed media painting using Crayola Crayons and soft chalk pastels. When I woke up I went to my studio and drew this little sketch using the two and actually finding out that it can be done! The paper I used wasn't quite what it needs for good success, so I'll be trying some softer paper like archival construction paper or some Canson drawing paper. I'm thrilled that more artists are using Crayola professionally instead of relying on wax crayons of other brands that are limited in color. Crayola offers a huge pallet as do pastels-They're made for one another!
