The choice is wide. The base of the pencils varies as well- wax, watercolour, pastel, and graphite. These are media bases that can be interchanged or mixed together. The effects that can be achieved are limitless. A work in pencil can be a drawing, a watercolor, or an oil painting. A wax pencil can sketch, can draw, can paint.
