Experimenting with Watercolor Pencils

Last month I purchased some Albrecht Durer Watercolor pencils. I love the look of Watercolor, but have I have trouble controlling where the color goes if I use only a brush. So, I purchased 3 Aquash water brushs by Pentel. I really love how these brushes give me more control because I can lay the color down in the area I want and then go over it with the water brush. When the pencil is dry, I can layer over the image with colored pencil to refine detail. What is even more fun, is I can then go back and forth with the watercolor pencils, and colored pencil applying layer after layer. When adding colored pencil, if I need to blend I use Gamsol and I can achieve the same watercolor effect.
