Art Exploration Pencil Crayons: Part III

The last three days I've been drawing the same thing, over and over, but with different products. I began with my Derwent Inktense Pencils, from there I tried my Prismacolors. Today I've tried my Caran d'ache pencils.
Caran D'ache Supracolors and Derwent Inktense are both water soluble. Inktense pigment becomes ink and permanent when water is added. Caran D'ache Supracolors turn into a watercolour. They can be reactivated with water at any time.

(all were completed in the same size, on the same type of paper Strathmore 500)

Art Exploration Pencil Crayons Part II

Yesterday I drew a green apple with Derwent Inktense pencils. Today I have drawn the same apple, but used Prismacolor pencil.
It's produced a very different look. Derwent Inktense can be used with water to create a painted look. The Prismacolor has been blended, but no water has been added, because that wouldn't have done a thing.

Tomorrow I may need to try this again, with my Caran D'ache watercolor pencil crayons to see what results they may bring.

Art Exploration Pencil Crayons Part I

I've been learning some new drawing and pencil crayon techniques. I'm really happy with this new drawing, except for the bottom shadowing.
It's about 5x5 inches square on Strathmore 500 with Derwent Inktense pencils.
