Lincoln roosterThis isn’t all from today; some of these are months old.

I’ve been fiddling around with Derwent Inktense pencils and traditional pan watercolors, trying to get some rich color-mixing going on. It’s harder than I thought it’d be. Especially the (caucasian) flesh tones. Damn white people, such complicated skin!

Here you can see me messing about with the skin tones. The guy was done earlier in the week, with both Inktense pencils and pan watercolors; Winsor & Newtone Rose Doré works pretty well. The color tests on the right are just the pencils, done today, as practice for the drawing of the woman below. bald man, color tests

I got a fairly good skin color here with just the Inktense pencils, but it’s for such a small area that it doesn’t really satisfy me. woman walking
