In the February issue of our ArtsyFartsy newsletter, I reviewed Derwent’s Inktense Pencils. There were so many comments about these pencils - I decided to do a follow-up demo. Inktense pencils are watersoluble and they dry permanent. I paint and draw simultaneously while making a painting and this is the stick I use for drawing. They are brilliant and intense.
Here are 6 small drawings I did with Inktense pencils. They act like watersoluble pencils but with very intense colors. I’ve tried them all - this Inktense pencil I love!
Inktense Pencils - up to 72 colors
I draw with a dry pencil then...
Wet with a watercolor brush. It will look like Bombay India ink and have the feel of sumi ink.
Or... wet the paper first. Then draw with the pencil. It bleeds! Cool!
