Watercolor Crayons-Complete Leaf Sketch Video

Over on my art blog I shared a short video last month on how to use watercolor crayons to draw and then paint a leaf in my nature journal. I had lots of readers email ask if I could make a video showing a start to finish watercolor crayon leaf so they would feel more confident to give it a try.


It took a little time to get this video pulled together and I had to do a little editing to get it to work on YouTube but here you go.


I am using watercolor crayons in my regular sketch journal. (click over to the blog to watch the video)

Hope this helps some of you out with getting starting with watercolor crayons.

  2. Barb,
    Thank you for doing the video.It helps to see the process.Do you use a special journal for watercolors? I have used one that the paper is thinner and we always have puckering.We cannot use the back side for later entries.

  3. Can this be done with watercolor pencils?

  4. Dear Kim,

    Yes the process would be nearly the same. Watercolor pencils blend a little more easily so you don’t need to work with them as much as the crayons.

    I made a video awhile back with watercolor pencils…
    Here is my blog with all my videos:
