I'd just like to say many thanks to my loyal band of followers for the lovely comments that you've left recently, they're really appreciated, and so are you! :)
I really been impressed with the artwork that I've seen around using Derwent Inktense pencils and I was thrilled when my lovely Hubby treated me to a set a couple of weeks back. I was instantly impressed when I saw the depth of colour that you can achieve with them in comparison with the normal water colour pencils. I also love how they just blend so effortlessly. I've coloured in a few images which I'll share will you at a later date but I thought I'd try something a little different for me which was definitely out of my comfort zone and here's the result:
I've used this fabulous stamp set by Visible image on several occasions but I thought I'd try to be a little more artistic with this one. Although there's lots that I need to try and improve on, I'm reasonably pleased with this as a first attempt.
I started by stamping the cat's face using Versafine ink. Once this was completely dry, I then used my new pencils to add the colour before using a water colour brush to blend it all.
