In last week’s sketchblog post I showed a flower illustration from start to finish (click here if you missed it).  That one was done using Derwent Aquatone and Graphitint pencils.

This week I’ve done one using my new Inktense pencils (also by Derwent), to compare the difference.  I’ve not posted the photos from every stage of the drawing, but enough for you to see the progression of the piece.








Now let’s have a look at the two finished pieces side by side…

The Inktense is far more vibrant (as one would expect!), but I do like the subtle tones of the first one.  I’ll have to try this again with another medium next time, might be nice to build up a little collection of them 🙂

It’s been one of those weeks which has seemingly flown by, yet I don’t seem to have got much done.  Hmm.  Still, here’s another flower illustration from start to finish (this one was a mixture of Derwent Graphitint and Aquatone pencils).

As mentioned in my CPSH post, last month I treated myself to lots of new supplies.  These included three sets of Derwent pencils: Graphitint, Aquatone and their tinted charcoal.

I’ve had good fun playing with them so far, and here’s an illustration of an allium from start to finish.

I used a mixture of the tinted charcoal and the Aquatone, and they work well together.  I think I’d have liked the background to be a bit darker though so might attempt this again at a later date.
