  • Watercolour (also called aquarelle) is a painting method where paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution.

  • Watercolour paint consists of four main properties - watercolour pigment, gum Arabic (binder to hold the pigment), honey and preservatives.

  • The paints are diluted using water and the tonal values will vary from dark to light depending on the water mixed with the paint.

  • Watercolours are known for their transparency and appear more vivid than acrylics or oils because the pigments in watercolours are in a purer form. 

  • It also comes in handy for Plein-air artists who love painting outdoors. 

  • Watercolour works well with other mediums like coloured pencils and inks to create mixed media composition. 

  • Watercolours are heavily water-based, as soon as two set colours touch, they begin to bleed into each other, which makes the blending process easy. 

  • It also gives a translucent finish.


About Product:


  • Watercolour pencils are art supplies that combine the convenience of drawing with pencils and the beautiful effects of watercolours. They are essentially compressed pigment encased in a water-soluble binder, similar to regular-colorued pencils. But when water is applied, the pigment dissolves and creates a transparent wash, like watercolour paint.

  • Watercolour pencils are a versatile medium that can be used for a variety of techniques, from creating detailed drawings to loose washes of colour. They are a great option for artists who want to create the look of watercolours without the mess of paints and brushes.


Here are some of the benefits of using watercolor pencils:


  • Portability: Watercolour pencils are compact and easy to take with you, making them a great choice for plein air painting or sketching on the go.

  • Versatility: They can be used dry for drawing and sketching, or wet for creating washes of colour.

  • Easy to use: They are relatively easy to learn and use, even for beginners.

  • Forgiving: Mistakes can be easily corrected by lifting colour with a damp brush.

  • Wide range of colours: Watercolour pencils come in a wide range of colours, from light and airy pastels to bold and vibrant hues.


Here are some tips for using watercolor pencils:


  • Use good quality watercolour paper: The paper you use will make a big difference in the results you achieve. Look for paper that is specifically designed for watercolours, as it is absorbent and will hold up to the water without warping or buckling.

  • Experiment with different techniques: There are many different ways to use watercolour pencils. You can use them dry for drawing and sketching, or wet for creating washes of colour. You can also use them to create layered effects or to add details to watercolour paintings.

  • Have fun! Watercolour pencils are a great way to experiment and create unique artwork.
