Without ink outline and details
With ink outline and details
Well, as I planned, I got out my old set of regular Derwent Watercolor Pencils and and used them for this third and last exercise. I have to admit that the colors from the Inktense set were, in fact, brighter, both going onto the paper and as the water was applied. I had to work harder to get as much color as I was aiming for using the regular set. In the middle of the exercise, it occurred to me that I really should have done these on watercolor paper to have a true test. In the future, when I decide to complete something using w/c pencils, I’ll run a short test on probably 140 lb paper and see what the difference is.
I still have a problem, however, with the Inktense lead color not representing the final color well. It really means making up a sample sheet with the colors and their names for future use and filling in several colors that weren’t represented in the set that I got (like a true red, for instance).
Well, this was a fun exercise and I hope you enjoyed my efforts. Any questions about what I did (or anything else, of course, are more than welcome!) Enjoy!
