    I am a total novice. Have never used water colors or pencils. How do you “wet” the colors?

    I have been using water colors pencils since I was a child. My mother and father liked to use them , in their art works. these pencils come in many colors and styles now. I try out as many as I can afford. the products have advanced since the 1950″s. I have been using them longer that some of you. I am 71 years young. My parents have moved on to heaven now. I still like to reflect on my beautiful times spent with my wonderful artful parents. God blessed me in deed to have given them to me. Thanks for Edward and Dixie Griffin.

    Thank you for this fun and instructional demo with watercolor pencils. I have some watercolor pencils and this gives me more info on how to use them. I especially liked your final touches with the black pen as I like pen and ink with watercolor. Thank you again and please do more of these.

    Love the pumpkins! What did you use for the lines – the stems and vines?

    I have used watercolor pencils for years. I once took a watercolor painting course. The instructor told me I had picked up too many bad habits from using pencils so long. I asked, but she wouldn’t be specific. I wish I could download one of my latest paintings done with Inktense pencils and Inktense blocks. They were purchased practically before they dried. Beware of naysayers and follow your own path. Watercolor pencils do it all.

    Very nice demo, Carlee. I love watercolor pencils but at first I hated them because I used them like colored pencils & was disappointed when I added water & they ran together & were muddy. I like that you showed wetting a small area at a time keeps the colors clean & true, & I like that you left dry areas around some of the shapes. Good job
