Watercolor on watercolor paper, about 8"x12".
This sketch is an experiment with Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor Sticks.
I ordered three (ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and burnt sienna) to try and they arrived yesterday.
I haven't used these enough to judge them, but my first impression is that, combined with water and brush, they are fun to draw with and act like watercolor. When used without the water, the effect is more like bad crayon. Here's a link to a review of the sticks by Robert Sloan, an oil pastel artist.
