Colored pencils on my desk
Faber-Castell Polychromos
I traded my watercolors for some fun with my new Faber-Castell Polychromos colour pencils today.
*Thank you Julia for my beautiful moth/butterfly prints!

Uy Geninne, a mi me costaba mucho pintar los dibujos, pero cuando descubrí los policromos, me enamoré!

these are my absolute favourite, when I was in art school I would use them to the bare bone.

Are these the best colour pencils? I want to buy myself a good set of colour pencils, but I don't know which are really good.
The drawings you make with them are indeed beautifull :-)

Oh I adore Polychromos! I ordered mine online and so picked the colours for them from photos and ended up with a slightly odd selection, I think I should've bought a set like yours!

These look just as lovely as your watercolours!

Are you using watercolour paper?

I have an older set of the Polychromos, but I'm having a hard time getting the smoothness I see you and others get. I have used mixed media paper(strathmore visual journal) and just yesterday I tried cardstock (because of I'm going to cut out the image.) I use the Derwent blender pencil, so that helps, but it feels like I'm cheating!

I'll have to try some other papers.

I love the colors, I didn't know color pencils could be that vivid. Hope to get my hands on a basic set sometime.

I think colored pencils make my art more free. I don't try to control them as much and I love that.

Lovely. As a Swiss, I prefer Caran D'Ache. As a matter of fact, I LOVE them!
