Line and Colour - drawing Demo at Art Shed Brisbane

Experimentation is both energising and inspirational. For the past couple of months I have been playing with various drawing mediums and in particular, the range of water soluble Derwent mediums - Derwent Sketching pencils, Graphitint Pencils, Tinted Charcoal, Inktense Pencils as well as the new ArtBars - the water soluble wax bar.

I will be demonstrating some of these next Saturday from 2 pm at Art Shed Brisbane Montague Road, West End.

I have used the Derwent Water soluble Sketching pencils for a number of years. I enjoy the fact that they are soft to draw with, come in three values: HB light wash; 4B medium wash; and 8B dark wash making them ideal for quick easy sketching.
There will be more about all of these in my next post when I’ll also post images of drawings using the different pencils.

    1. Thanks Casey, I am a huge fan of your work , maybe using pastels will be next.....
