Product Testing: Derwent Inktense pencils

Adding tone to a simple line sketch – ‘Spaniel’

A very quick test of the potential of Derwent Inktense pencils in a simple line sketch – tone is so easy to apply with just the addition of water.

The possibilities are endless.

First of all, apologies for Part Two being the wrong way around. My video editor is refusing to let me turn it around. Pretty cool how the second layer of Inktense can be applied without disturbing the dry layer underneath, which would be impossible using watercolour. This allows the intensity of tone to be built up with complete control. It’s intuitive for me to work in layers so this is a really useful lesson to have learned.

I will try to post little ‘tests’ like these regularly as I think they’re fun little exercises to share.
