Colored Pencils: Simplicity

Coloured pencils are extremely popular, both with professional artists and amateurs. They are easy to use and do not necessarily require any technical skills. They are versatile, lightweight, portable, durable, and mess-free.

Watercolour Pencils: Versatility

Watercolour pencils can be used like coloured pencils, but they have the added advantage of creating an effect akin to watercolour paint. Once the colour has been applied with your pencil, you can use a wet brush to achieve the effect of a watercolour painting.

Did you know?

Coloured pencils were invented in the 18th century by an Austrian named Joseph Hardtmuth and a Frenchman named Nicolas-Jacques Conté. But it was only in the 1930s that the first quality coloured pencils saw the light of day. Since then, coloured pencils have become essential, both for artists and for everyday use by the general public.
