I picked up some water color pencils to try out. I did this little ACEO (2.5 x 3.5 inches) sized doodle to see how well they worked, and I'm not sure I like them. When wet, I can move the color around somewhat, but I can't predict how much. Some colors seem to just disappear when wet and others get more intense. It's impossible to get a completely smooth color. My daughter says I'm just not used to the way water colors look. I may go back to guoache.
If you have any tips on using these, please let me know.
