So here are the colour charts for my walking kit – pencils and markers inside my Greenwood Journal (that I carry inside a Walkit sketching bag) and my main sketching kit that I carry in my usual handbag and use with watercolour inside my Alpha 8×10 sketchbook. See more about my two kits here.
I’ve done the colour charts in a way that it’s easy to see which colours I have in both kits (or an alternative). You will notice that I have a combination of watercolour pencils (WCPs) and coloured pencils (CPs). I like using CPs under watercolour and could easily add a few more to my main kit.
Oh! it’s hard to limit the number of pencils in my kit! Do you find this is the case too?
I like using a few different brands – and still using a lot of Caran d’Ache Museum pencils. This is mainly because they work the best on the paper inside the Greenwood.
- CdAM – Caran d’Ache Museum (WCP)
- DA – Derwent Artists (CP)
- DInk – Derwent Inktense (WCP)
- DCS – Derwent Coloursoft (CP)
- FCPC – Faber Castell Polychromos (CP)
- FCAD – Faber Castell Albrecht Durer (WCP)
- PrismaC – Prismacolor (CP)
It’s been so fun to use a variety of pencils (and markers) and different colour combinations over the last few months. I’m still using these predominantly for bush scenes and the occasional building sketch. So I’m interested to see how these selections will change over time. I’d also like to use more coloured pencils… Ah! I’m always wanting to try something new! 🙂
