Testing out Derwent Metallic Pencils

Playing with these Derwent Metallic Pencils. They aren’t very impressive. Once they’re wet, they’re no longer metallicy and just look like normal watercolor pencils. And they look better in a dark background.

Continued Explorations with Derwent Inktense Color

More playing with Derwent Inktense pencil color mixing, going for more nuetral tones this time.

Another take on Derwent Inktense color charts.

More color charts with my Inktense pencils. I really REALLY love how they came out. They seem almost … subterranean maybe? I dunno.

Breaking in the new Stillman & Birn Sketchbook!

Testing out the new Stillman & Birn 7×7 Zeta Series sketchbook with my Derwent Inktense pencils! The thick paper took the waterbrush well, but did tend to pool and not dry as quickly. It also started to rub a little bit towards the end of the color chart. Otherwise, I really love how these turned out and really love the size and binding of this sketchbook.

New Derwent Inktense Colors!

Woot! When I initially bought my Derwent Inktense pencils, I chose the 36 pack. So now that I’ve actually started using them more, I wanted to pick up a few more. Yay for Dick Blick art supplies!! They have arrived, 15 new colors! Of course, I would end up with a duplicate. Oh well. 😀

Derwent Inktense Pencils

Playing with some Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils that I’ve had forever and not really played with. But I ordered a nifty waterbrush from Jetpens and was like why not? In a Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook.
