While away, I traveled with a sketchbook I made with multimedia paper as a class sample. Figured I should use it! I also brought pens and pencils. I just purchased Derwent Color soft (markdown at AC Moore from $70 to $16!!!! WOWZA!!!) and some inktense pencils, both I had not used. I also had a mix of Derwent watercolor and regular, prisma watercolor and regular and Portfolio regular and watercolor. I made a few sketches-had less time than I thought I would! Here is my sad Medusa. Her face is watercolor and regular colored pencils that I use on my dolls. The large snake with the white ridge is inktrnse and the remaining snakes are color soft (which I really like so far) and my old prisma/Derwent/portfolio pencils. I blended the Inktense with a slightly damp makeup sponge. I may do the sane to thr rattlesnake using mineral spirits but afraid that will sink into thr paper. So far, the paper has not bled at all- not the ink pens or the water. After looking at the finished product, I know why I don't enjoy sketching! Next one Is a collage of papers I collected. Want to see how glue affects the paper.
