Watercolor Pencils

If you’re committed to colored pencils yet yearn to create watercolor washes in your drawings, maybe it’s time to consider watercolor pencils. Blick has an extensive selection of watercolor pencils for artists at every level.

Much like colored pencils in that they come in pencil form and feature the same vibrant colors, blending qualities, covering power, and lightfastness, watercolor pencils (or aquarelle pencils, as they are sometimes called) can be used both wet and dry. Used dry, they're great for creating both fine lines and wide swaths of color. Used wet, they allow artists to create a variety of watercolor effects, much like watercolor paints. They can be applied dry and then blended or washed over with a wet brush, dipped into water and applied directly for more intense colors, or combined with other media such as watersoluble graphite pencils to create subtle tones and other effects.

Looking to introduce younger artists to this unique drawing media? Blick offers high-quality kids' watercolor pencil sets and classroom packs to get them started on the right path.
