Welcome to dickblick
These professional-quality, water-soluble pencils offer the artist the freedom to switch from drawing to painting in an instant, with no change in tools. Use them to shade on dry paper, then quickly wash over with brush and water to get a blending effect.
Use wetted paper for intensified colors with softened edges, or try wetting the pencil first for rich, textured lines. Each pencil is pre-sharpened and has a 3.4 mm diameter color strip.

Comments about Derwent Watercolor Pencils:
I'm new to using watercolor pencils. I bought these to use in painting en plein aire. Have not experimented enough to have a solid comment. The times I have used them, they did not seem to dissolve completely, leaving pencil marks on 140 Lb cold press.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Best Watercolor Pencils
By Hairy Larry
from Wirtz, VA
I have used Derwent Watercolor Pencils on smooth bristol paper, handmade rag paper and Aquarius II watercolor paper, and was able to get them to perform well with each. My only complaint has been that an on-line art supply house shipped individual pencils to me in a soft pack and one of them was completely broken in two.
I LIKE it
just a beginner. so for so good.
I went to Derwent
On a lark I bought a set of 12 Metallic Derwent (instead of plain ole' ColorPencils). Very impressed! So I did the 72 Derwent. A very good investment for my idle time. At 85 I have a little!!
A huge box of Heaven!

Wentworth watercolor pencils
from Placerville Ca
Fun Fun! Great to use with a brush, or use as a coloring pencil. When left dry, they leave a nice texture look on watercolor paper if used as an overlay color making it nice for clothes. Need to be careful if you are going th wet the pencil before using it on watercolor paper. It can sort of blob too much. Truly recommend them!
Great watercolor tool
from Grand Junction, CO
This is my first set of watercolor pencils so I can't compare them with other brands. I have used them enough to know that I will be using them on their own and, at times, combined with regular watercolor paints. Depending on how you use the pencils they can leave some light lines, or other patterns, after adding the water. This is a good thing if you want to add some texture. I am sure I will keep finding new ways to use them.
