Purchased these pencils for an art group I attend, this was my first venture into watercolour pencils. I find them excellent, they do what they say, there is a great selection of colours, and the pencils work well with water applied to the tips or to the paper.
For a first venture great value.

These arrived this morning (wasn't expecting delivery so quick, another well done!) via Royal Mail in perfect condition-the pencils were inside a book wrap type package and there is no damage to the pencils.
The colours are really beautiful, several shades of yellows, reds, greens, blues, and browns, with black, greys, and white pencils rounding out the colour options. I bought this set for my husband's Christmas stocking and I think he is really going to love the shading available with these pencils both dry and wet. We agreed to go low-tech this year and to gift things that could be used to kick start or re-start a hobby, and nothing that needs batteries or mains to work-these meet the rules we set for Christmas 2012 very nicely.
The price here is fantastic, too. I went looking for a list of the colours on other sites since the colours aren't listed here, and found through that search that everyone else is charging at least twice what Amazon is charging. That was a nice bonus:)
