James Garner - Inktense Pencils

James Garner
Derwent Inktense pencils on 11x15” Arches cold press water colour paper.

I think I’ll have to create a chart or small book for the Inktense pencils — the colour shift can be really surprising.  The brick coloured Chilli Red shifted to a really saturated cherry colour after the water was added. This is the third piece I’ve done with just the inktense pencils, so I expect I’m still at the bottom of the learning curve, but I really enjoy the medium and the process of learning it.

To be honest, by guessing the colour results and using a spray bottle the way I am, I’m forcing a certain randomness into the result, but I think the higher risk of failure makes for a more exciting learning process.
