Eureka! Watercolor Pencils

Down on the Farm, Piermont, NH
This is a sketch I did entirely with watercolor pencils. They've been around for a long time but I've never really experimented with them before. I've outlined the tips and tricks I used over at the Urban Sketcher - Chicago blog for this week's Tips & Tricks post. After doing this sketch I've added a few watercolor pencils to my regular out and about sketch kit. I love the texture and juicy yet controlled darks that are possible with the pencils.

  1. Lovely textures! I have dabbled with them and recently developed an obsession with doing all my "underdrawing" with Derwent Blue Gray pencil, no ink. Truly love the subtlety and the lines!
