The results from tonight’s Toons on Tap @The Round.  The J-pop music nearly killed me, but I had much fun with my conte, graphite and Inktense pencils drawing the models dressed as Sailor Jupiter.

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.

Think I‘ve done all I can do on this tonight. Will let James dry oveernight and might to a final bit of tweaks.

Second soaking.  Really enjoying the colour changes in the Inktense pencils when wet.  Letting James dry again

First wash took much longer to dry than expected.  Added some Iron Blue darks and Red Oxide to back. Another soaking now.

1st soak.  That went really, really red. I should video what happens sometime.  Letting dry for an hour or so.

About to apply first spray of water to this James Garner drawing.  Wonder what‘ll happen…
