Pencils are easy and convenient to use, paints a little less so. But there's a high quality colour pencil that you can paint with as well, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. Derwent Watercolour can be used wet or dry, on wet or dry paper, to achieve a wide variety of effects. It comes in 72 classic colours, which retain their full intensity however you use them. For sheer versatility, Derwent Watercolour is unmatched.
Just what I wanted to colour with. The pencils are very easily blended when dry and give good colour. Hazel Tinson (Ryde, United Kingdom) on 10 Mar 2013

I discovered these pencils when visiting the pencil factory in Keswick. I am very pleased with them. They make colour sketching a joy and without the mess of watercolours. Ann Crew (Pitlochry, United Kingdom) on 13 Dec 2012
