Autumn leaf

This leaf was done with inktense again, but instead of using the pencil tips, I used the blocks if I had the color. I was able to get a much more intense color lot easier this way. I also used frisket to keep the light yellow lines while I did the washes.

Fall Leaf

This leaf was done with inktense pencils but I pulled the color off the pencil tip instead of drawing on the paper. The big difference between these and watercolor pencils is that once the inktense are dry they won't mix with the next layer which gies you a totally different effect when blending colors especially complimentaries like the fuchsia and green or the yellow and violet.

Here the emphasis was to creat a glow. I should really have spent more time defining the leaf too.

Still drawing

I realized that I hadn't added a single entry this month. I have continued to sketch, but not worry so much about finished drawings. On this one I was trying to get washes from the tip of my inktense pencils.
