Watercolor Pencils




I just love watercolor pencils. Why did it take me so long to discover these gems? I love their ease of use; especially since I have always wanted to learn watercolor, but never had the patience or opportunity. Now I feel as if I can get the watercolor effect with the ease of a pencil...this is great! My next purchase will surely be a paintbrush with a water reservoir so that I can take along my watercolor journal and pencils when I travel.

Thanks to Pam for inspiring this "Trio of Pears." I agree with her...pears are great fun to draw. And now they can even be done in watercolor...yippee!

I too love my watercolor pencils - i like the control. Much easier than just a brush I think. Love what you've done with yours, Nancy :D

Whoever invented watercolour pencils needs a medal. Pencils over paints any day :-)

And yes, nice pears. Have you tried peppers cut in half? I can't get enough of them!!!

Every since I put the 3 dollar store oversized pears in my bedroom I have been drawing pears everywhere! I love yours!!! And yes those watercolor pencils are terrific. I even enjoy drawing with them before doing my acrylic paintings!
