Spend a delightful evening embracing watercolor pencil techniques, learning drawing and painting techniques at the same time. Now you can figure out what to do with those pencils that have been lying around your worktable! We'll explore layering color, washes and glazes, and detailed drawing tips. Watercolor pencils are great for journals and for traveling. Colors become vibrant and yummy when water is applied to the paper surface. The effects range from smooth to textural with effortless brush strokes. Drawing does not have to be a serious undertaking. It only takes practice and play and a smile!
