I am packed and ready to fly off on my holiday. In my preparations I bought some watercolour pencils. I purchased 24 Prismacolour watercolour pencils and I made a quick colour chart (in my brand new journal). This is something that I always do with new art supplies. It provides me with a guide to the actual colours of the materials and is such a wonderful bonding time with my new colours. I do love to play with pretty, new toys.
Although I had planned to buy the Derwent Inktense, they were not in stock, and I needed instant gratification. I already love Prismacolour Coloured Pencils so the choice was made. I am very happy so far with them, the colours are great and the pencils very soft and creamy. The colours changed a lot when wet, so I am glad I made the chart and had a little play, but they are intense and dissolved well in water. Can’t wait to start working with them.
I was so pleased with my new acquisition and the colours they made, I decided to share them with you and the ones I made with my Prismacolour Colour Pencils. These I cut out as I use them as colour chips and will often to match colours with items, (it is so easy to pick up the chip and hold it up to an item) or I group them together when I am trying to figure out a colour scheme. I also just play with them, cause it is fun and I love pretty colours.
Well my next post will be from Paris
