How to use watercolor pencils

Watercolor pencils are my favorite medium at the moment, I love them for their versatility and portability, I take them everywhere with me and I paint with them on my Bullet Journal daily.It is a unique, amazing medium, specially for a beginner. If you like watercolor paint you should definitively try it!If you are interested have a look at my Skillshare classes "How to use Watercolor Pencils" & "How to use Watercolor Pencils: Color Theory" These pencils are a combination between normal colored pencils and watercolor paint, and as with regular pencils we're able to blend and create depth and also work on the details of our art.Watch at the end of this post the step by stepFloral Wreath Tutorial (click here) Creative Tip: Use watercolor pencils as portable paint by rubbing the tip of the pencil to a wet brush to apply the pigment and then use as normal watercolor paint.

To create a unique texture you can use your finger or even a sponge. And finally to wet the pigment evenly you can use a sprayer to create a splatter look Wet pencil on dry paper This technique is best to work on the details of your watercolor artwork: dip the tip of your pencil on water and then draw on dry paper. As we activate the pigment on the pencil before drawing , the color will come out vibrant and you'll have more control over the details than you'll have with a bush.

Bullet Journal: May 2020

This month's theme on my bullet planner: strawberries ??? To paint with watercolors on this sketchbook is not an easy task because I have to be really careful with the amount of water I apply to not ruin the paper. Luckily the paper resisted and I love the end result! Please let me know if you find it useful! And if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to leave a comment!
