Rainbow Watercolor with Hand Lettering

 

I love experimenting with watercolor pencils! There are so many ways you can use them! For this project, I used the Faber-Castell Mixed Media tin. 

The first step is to lay down your color. I followed rainbow order but you can play around with different combinations (remember the color wheel).

Once you have the color where you want it...ADD WATER! 

Tip: clean your brush between each color or it will turn muddy from too much mixing.
