Painting with pencils, drawing with water. Hand drawn watercolour pencil artwork offered for sale as prints. Portrait commissions taken.

Welcome to my world - watercolour pencil drawings by Martin Balmer.

My artwork is hand-drawn using special water soluble pencils.
These help to create the vibrancy and motion of a painting whilst complementing the intricate fine lines of a pencil drawing.

Watercolour drawings literally painted with pencils.

I discovered watercolour pencils at the Pencil Museum, in Cumbria, England a few years ago. Since then I have evolved and defined my artwork style.

My artwork prints of watercolour pencil drawings are created by first taking a high resolution detailed scan of the original work, capturing every pencil stroke.

Physical prints are then printed it onto high quality fine art paper.

A matt finish provides the most appropriate look, keeping these pencil drawings true to the appearance of the original.

The finished print is then available to purchase, and posted unfolded and unrolled, flat, in card-backed envelopes.
