I think watercolor pencils take a bit of getting used to. Light touch on the paper with several layers, then use a brush with a smallish amount of water...not almost dry but not dripping either. I have better luck with a watercolor brush where I can control the water than I do with one of the water brushes (have water in the handle) where you can't .

I use some Strathmore paper. It's a fine paper. Don't give up on the paper yet.

in awe of the One who gave it all.
I'll stand, my soul, Lord, to You surrendered,
all I am is Yours.
