In this class, you will learn how to use watercolor pencils and experiment with blending techniques for beginners. First, you will start off with your drawing, which can be done in regular pencil and then lightened with a kneaded eraser. Another option for you would be to jump right in with the watercolor pencils and start that way. Most watercolor pencils do not erase completely so just keep that in mind.

I will go through the colors that I chose for my floral art project. I will also show how to layer and blend each color with water, so you can see how they dissolve and transform into a painting. When using watercolor pencils you can blend your colors completely or you can leave some of the texture from the pencil. The texture outcome will depend on how much water you use. This process will lead to some fun art experiments depending on your subject matter.

This class is great for beginners looking to expand in watercolors. The watercolor pencils offer more detail if you are someone who likes more structure and precision throughout your artwork. I have listed all of the supplies that I used down below.

Supplies Used

Fantasia - Watercolor Pencils
Winsor & Newton - Watercolor Paper
Winsor & Newton - Watercolor Brush
Paper Towel/Rag
A cup of Water
If you haven't already, I recommend making a color reference chart with whatever watercolor set that you are using. Some colors may look completely different when the water is added, so this reference chart will be a great help for you to look back at. The colors that I have do not have any names, so in this case, they are numbered for convenience. I have taped the chart inside the tin case so it always remains in the same place.
