This was an excercise with the new Derwent watercolour pencils (the ones with the dark blue barrel). I only have a small selection but I really like them and hope to get the complete set. I applied several layers of pencil blended with a damp water-brush, added more layers and dampened again until I achieved the depth of colour. There is no dry pencil on top. The paper is a beige Stonehenge. I now have to decide what to do with the background.
