List It Tuesday - Watercolor Pencil Magic

I finished the first chapter of my library book about using watercolors, called Watercolor Pencil Magic, by Cathy Johnson.  To help me become familiar with my pencils, she suggested that I make a list of the names with a sample of what the colors are like.  It's a good idea - the dry and wet pencil marks look very different!

List It Tuesday is back with Aimee from artsyville!

This is so clever -- and frameable, too! If only I were this organized!

The watercolor pencils are cool! I've only used the water color crayons they are nice too, but take up a larger space. The pencils seem like they would be great for small spaces!

I like how you've listed the colours of your watersoluble pencils. What a great idea!

I love Cathy Johnson, and I love your list! :) I haven't got her book on watercolour pencils, though she does talk about it a bit in the watercolour and sketching in nature books I have. Seems you're off to a great start for List It Tuesday :)

I love the idea of using your reference page as a list for List It Tuesday. I just posted some reference pages for black pens, colored pens, and pencils, and have found them to be very useful as I pursue a sketchbook practice.
