Prismacolor Pencils offer excellent coverage in rich colours. Prismacolor's website has a wealth of information and includes a gallery of inspiring artwork submitted by artists.
Prismacolor Premier Pencil Set features 12 high quality pigments for rich colour saturation. The soft, thick cores create a smooth colour laydown for superior blending and shading. They’re vivid and intense in one stroke and subtle and soft in the next, making them perfect for any project, big or small. The WaterColor Pencil Set contains 12 water soluble coloured pencils that can be used alone or with a brush to create translucent watercolour effects in your art. Use them wet or dry. Simply add water to blend and fill in any white spaces.
Lydia Steeves' Fur & Feathers in Coloured Pencil includes techniques for working with coloured pencils (Lydia recommends Prismacolors). Inside her book you will find this adorable cat plus seven other equally cute designs.
