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.
Available in tins of 12, 24, 36 & 72.

I had never used watercolour pencils. These seem easy to use, nice colours, slightly muted, mix well on the paper. Jean McK (York, UK) on 17 Jul 2020
