I am now using these Derwent Inktense pencils from England. They are wonderful. I highly recommend them. This is just getting a feel for the pencils. The colors are so beautiful. You just draw with the pencils like you normally do and then add water with your brush and blend and magically it happens. Let it dry and color and go again and again. No worries once its dry its ink and you can color again and again. I just love these pencils. This was a commissioned piece for a client. Pencil on watercolor paper.
