Besides that little set of Sennelier watercolors, I have a new set of pencils I’m loving. They are Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle colored pencils. I love that they’re watersoluble, but the original line you put down stays in it’s place. The colors are really vibrant, and the lead is strong enough to hold up to my handling it (which isn’t very gently).
Here are some sketches using the pencils and paints. All done in a small SM.ALT Art #Authenticbook sketchbook.
There’s something about colored pencils that keeps it casual and fun for me, and I like that. Do you find you do more casual and fun work when you mix media? And what are some media you carry in your urban sketching kit?
