Tracy here with today's post !
Do you have art supplies that you purchased because you just 'had' to have them ???....... Come on, own up !!
I know I do....all those lovely supplies that I 'needed' desperately at the time and then have hardly if ever used since.....sometimes I think I could set up my own art store with the amount of unused arty loveliness!!!!
No more !!!! ( alright who am I kidding !!) but I've decided that I need to start using things that I buy, play and explore all these gorgeous new mediums, experiment and justify their purchase !!!
So this week I decided to get out my inktense pencils, which I'm ashamed to say I've had for approximately 3 years and only ever used the black 'tut tut'
I started by sketching in the basic outline of my girl, I didn't want to do anything too complicated, after all this was all about the pencils.....
The colours of the pencils are amazing I used Cadmium Yellow, Hot Red, Fuchsia and Mustard and even though I only used a few colours the amount of depth I could get with them was great by adding more or less water or by using them direct to the page...
I used a thin black fine liner to add in some final sketchy details.
I love how my girl turned out and I am in awe of these pencils. The colours are 'intense' hence the name I guess and they are super easy to use.
Ok I'm off now to see what other purchases I can justify !!!
Have a fabulous day
