Purple Joanie

Years ago back in Tucson there was a gal name of Purple Joanie. Everything she wore had purple.. From her earrings to her shoes.. LOL   I've been going back down memory lane lately with a long lost BFF... She reminded me of this gal and when I was creating this painting I just had to honor Purple Joanie. ROFL!!

The substrate I used was Canvas board . I used Acrylics, Watercolor Crayons and Watercolor Pencils. Lately I have been using my watercolor pencils a lot. I want to get some more and
am not sure which brand to buy.
What I have was a gift to me and I don't have that many.
Anyone have an opinion on which watercolor pencils are the best
to get.

I was thinking of the Prisma Color Watercolor pencils but someone said they 
didn't like them.

Confused in Indiana! LOL

I would love to hear from you guys in a comment which 
watercolor pencils you like the best...

I use them primarily for shading and portrait work.

I do have a small set of inktense pencils but use those  mostly
in my Art Journals.

I'm joining the party over at Paint Party Friday this week. Head on over there to see some fabulous 

Thanks for stopping by..
