Watercolor Pencils

A friend is taking watercoloring art class and was telling me about watercolor pencils. I came home and looked up some demos on YouTube and really like the look. So, I purchased Faber Castell watercolor pencils at Hobby Lobby. This is after the first tutorial on trying out different colors and shades. Another on my bucket list of new techniques!
This is my second practice piece. It looks like the sketch at Pals Paper Arts.
I added the sentiment from SU. Makes a really quick CAS card.
Remains to be seen what a more complicated design will look like. Will keep practicing and see if I end up liking anything.


  1. Fun! I have some water color pencils but haven't used them in ages. I don't really know how to use them well, so it's always a bit of a struggle for me. Guess I should give them another try. Your card looks great - a very artsy look that I like!

  2. What a great idea! I used to use color pencils all the time. Thanks for playing at PPA!

  3. You did an awesome job in blending the various colors together. If that is your first time using colored pencils I bet as you get more practice your coloring will be phenomenal! Thank you for joining the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week.
