Circles of Flowers

This drawing was done on a 16″ x 20″ Art Board.  It took a very long time to finished.  (Okay, I had to stop and declare it finished.)  It was inspired by art work I saw on TV.  Every time the circles cross each other, they changed colors.

I was created with Derwent Watercolor Pencils and Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Drawing 1

Large Colorful Mandala 10

Flowers and more flowers. Done with Derwent Inktense Pencils on 16″ x 20″ Carson Artboard. Inktense is like watercolor pencils, the only difference is once water is applied, it’s permanent. One tip I used was, if you outline in color pencils, it will help with the bleeding. So, I used Prismacolor pencil on the outline.

Flowers on Bamboo

Below is a drawing I did by hand with Derwent Inktense Pencils and Watercolor pencils on 9″ x 12″ watercolor paper.

After I finished the drawing, I thought it would be a fun page to color. So, I recreated the drawing in CoralDraw.  This version was created for letter size paper, therefore the flowers are spaces .75″ apart, instead of the 1″ spacing used on the hand drawing.

I created a black and white version that is available for download on my Coloring Page.

Inktense Experiment

Below is the result of my experiment with Derwent Inktense pencils.   These pencils work by adding color to the paper and applying water.  Once dry, the ink is permanent.  Watercolor pencils and paint you can remoisten.

The drawing was done of watercolor paper with Micron pens.
