Inktense


Here's a version of last evening's face, with some color added. I used the Derwent Inktense pencils I bought at Jerry's in Austin. I applied a light coat of color directly from the pencils (the skintone in this photo looks a bit yellower than the original), then gently went over it with a Niji waterbrush. This spread the color quickly and smoothly- almost like a very light wash of watercolor. It was a much smoother application than with watercolor pencils. The Inktense color is supposed to be permanent when dry. Now I have to keep myself from buying all the rest of the Inktense colors...
PS: Yes, she has some silver in her hair :).
