Watercolour Pencils

I'm getting into watercolour painting and have seen some nice examples of watercolour pencils used in conjunction with watercolour paint to create some nice effects. I hadn't used my watercolour pencils for years, so I got them out to have a practice. This is just an adult colouring page I found online - ideal for experimenting with the pencils and getting a feel for them. I penciled in the whole thing dry and then added water (using a water brush - such a great invention!) to create a first wash. I then let it dry and added subsequent washes to create dimension. A great learning exercise, and I have to agree with all those who love adult colouring - it's SO relaxing!
