Another page in my Moleskine sketchbook.
This time sketching pencils and WH Smith colour pencil in red.
I am still in pain with my leg and waiting for cortisone injection so by the time I have done my dailychores I haven't felt like working on anything major in my art room. Therefore I have been spending my spare time looking at and comparing different art materials. I have a list as long as my arm of new materials I want to get my hands on.
I am currently looking at Derwent Inktense Blocks and Faber Castell Gelato's. I am just trying to decide what to invest in so if anyone has any thoughts I would love to hear them.
For the above double page spread I did a swatch test to compare the reds in my WH Smith colour pencil set and my Derwent Academy pencils. My WH Smith set won hands down for me. I think they are such good quality for the price.
I have never been interested in making swatches of my paints and pencils but plan on doing a swatch test to compare my WH Smith set with my Prismacolor set. I only have a portrait set of Prismacolor's so will have to try and match up some colours from both sets to compare. I will post about my findings next time.
Thanks for visiting.
