Explorations

New Year New …

I collect (possibly hoard) art supplies. Its similar to buying new tennis shoes to run faster. Just owning the art supply will improve, inspire … you get the picture!!

First up – Derwent Inktense Pencils

I’m a little afraid of colored pencils. My art style is big, bold, abstract. I admire beautiful colored pencil creations but don’t want to emulate. So why do I buy colored pencils?? As well as other mark making supplies?? First of all I like sets of things! I love all the colors in one place. I also like the portability of “small” supplies. Though I don’t go anywhere with them! I like the idea. I day dream of sketching in public. Maybe this year?? Just found this post that could help!

Back to the Derwent Inktense Pencils – With no idea what to do and lots of googling I started with a color chart. I’m spending a week with these pencils! More soon.
