Water Color Pencils

So, I decided to stretch my comfort zone with water color pencils. I think I need to watch some tutorials. LOL I've been experimenting in water color paints for a while now, but pencils? I learned that there is more control with pencils, but I like the chaos that results from the paints.
I also need to learn what happens when I use wet brush on wet paper, dry brush on wet paper, and wet brush on dry paper.Well, at least you can tell they're glass vases/bottles. LOL
I had planned on taking a drawing/water colors class at the community college. I bid on and won a free class there. But for the last year and a half there were no classes Iwas interested in that fit into my tight schedule. So I waited and waited and finally found this one. But the school closed for two weeks and then the grandbaby was born and I went to visit and help out and the next thing I know my certificate expired.
So I will continue to learn from YouTube, Pinterest and Google.Whatever your art form, have fun, crafters!
Challenges I am Entering:
Shopping our Stash - Splish, Splash (wet medium)
2 Crafty Girls challenges - Inspiration Board
Not Just Cards - Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room - Inspiration photo (I saw a vase with flowers)
