How to use Watercolor Pencils with a Waterbrush (Palo Alto)

February 14, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm PST

Watercolor Pencils are a great way to add color to your field sketches. Applying the pencils is intuitive and the waterbrush makes field application easy. However, watercolor pencils can perform in unexpected ways that can be frustrating. In this workshop, you will learn how to work with watercolor pencils to get a variety of effects and turn the bugs of the system into a feature.

Learn how to:

  • Approach a drawing with an intentional system.
  • Add shadows to a drawing without turning the drawing to mud.
  • Layer dry and wet pencil techniques.
  • Blend a small set of pencils to get a wide range of colors.
  • Predict color and value changes with water application.


All ages and experience levels are welcome.  No registration necessary,
