I read a post over at Deep Space Sparkle today where Patty discusses her favorite paint supplies for the classroom. She mentioned that she was looking to try pan watercolors other than Prang. Last year, one of the teachers at school brought me a whole box full of Art supplies that were left from her classroom. Included in the box were several trays of Crayola watercolors. I came up with the brilliant plan of making two watercolor paintings, one with Prang and one with Crayola, so I could compare the results. What I didn't count on was that I would end up wanting to make paintings with two totally different color schemes! I ended up with two paintings of birds but other than that, they aren't very similar so my color comparison experiment is a bust. I think I should just do something simple like a color wheel to compare. I'll add that to my list of 137 things to do. :)
Here is a wood duck painted with Prang watercolors, below is a rainforest bird (I think some kind of bee eater but I'm having trouble with the identification) painted with Crayola watercolors.
