Virtual Sketch September

So I did a very very quick little art card for this months Virtual Sketch using Derwent Inktense pencils. Loose sketch with the pencils seen above and than wetted down.

Looks more like a green and pink blob :p Hopefully next month I don't leave it until the last minute :/

Your sketch has a very sweet, valiant quality ... and the way the colors mingle in the vase is lovely.

Jennifer, it is not a green and pink blob! Not bad at all for a quick sketch. Remember success is in the doing. :) I have to say I was suprised how much color you got out of those few lines!

You've inspired me to want to break out my set of Inktense pencils and have a play. Lovely sweet sketch.

I think it's pretty good for a quick one. You got all the colors in and blended. Nice job. I also left it to the last minute. I hate to hurry.

This little sketch captures all the necessary information from the reference. Well done!

I love inktense pencils - they are my favourite watercolour pencil as the colours are so vivid. You have managed in double-quick time to do a lovely sketch.

I like the spontaneous quality of this! It's a great sketch, however quick :)

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks laura :)

The Inktense are great, just needs a few more colours. I need to remember to try to sketch as soon as the photo is put up lol

Glad it doesn't look like a green and pink blob (well not that much). You really don't need a lot of pencil down and you get such vibrant colours even when it dries.

Have fun with the Inktense pencils melissa! :)

Thanks jeanne and jenette :)

Thanks kari :) I think they are my fav watercolour pencil too :)

Small and cute, with a nice hard edge to the glass. Someone will be lucky to receive a greeting on this dear little card.
