If you are likely to enjoy using both watercolour pencils and a variety of thicknesses of artist pens, this is definitely a set worth considering; it's ideal for aspiring artists or those wanting to try out more products - I've been more of a dry coloured pencil user myself, so 'wet' media is a slight departure from the norm. The pencils are exceptionally good quality compared to most I've used, the 'leads' don't break (my set was well packaged when sent through the mail) and despite laying down a lovely layer of colour, they don't need sharpening as often as some much softer pencils (e.g. Derwent Coloursoft & Inktense, which are both gorgeous ranges too!).

The set includes Albrect Duerer (omit the first e and put an umlaut over the u in Durer for the correct spelling!) pencils in the following colours:
107 Cadmium Yellow;
115 Dark Cadmium Orange;
127 Pink Carmine;
136 Purple Violet;
120 Ultramarine;
110 Phthalo Blue;
266 Permanent Green;
276 Chrome Oxide Green Fiery;
283 Burnt Siena;
199 Black.

The set also contains the following Pitt Artist Pens:
199 Black superfine (fineliner);
235 Cold Grey VI brush pen;
233 Cold Grey IV big brush pen.

There is also a paint brush for use with the watercolour pencils; this is labelled as a number 6, which may or may not relate to other ranges' number 6s (it's a lot bigger than some number 6 brushes I've seen).

It may also be useful to know that this set, like all Faber Castell pencil products, is suitable for vegans as there are no animal products in the pigments etc. The pens are also odour-free, so much more pleasant to use than some.

I love this media set. The Durer watercolour pencilsare high quality and, with water, are easy to combine to produce subtle shades. With two art pens and a paintbrush, all packed in a handy tin, this is a perfect starter set, and one I recommend.
