Birdy and the turtle
Birdy is out for a little walk with his new friend.
I got a beautiful set from my sweetheart. It is a box of Derwent Inktense Pencils. The box also contain ink, a grinding stone and 3 mop brushes.
Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. The pencils are available in 72 strong, vibrant colours. They work beautifully on their own but can easily be mixed together. The colors are perfect for bold expressive illustrations. Or if you want a more intense colour than the watercolour gives. Inktense pencils can be used dry or washed out. Once dry, the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media.
The box set pencils are round but the pencils from my 12 set is hexagon shaped.
My set of 12 has the following colours: Sun Yellow, Tangerine, Poppy Red, Fuchsia, Deep Indigo, Sea Blue, Teal Green, Apple Green, Leaf Green, Baked Earth, Bark, and Ink Black.
The box set of has the following colours: set includes: Sherbert Lemon, Sun Yellow, Burnt Orange,Scarlet Pink, Hot Red, Shiraz, Deep Rose, Thistle, Mauve, Deep Violet, Lagoon, Iron Blue, Bright Blue, Dark Aquamarine, Felt Green, Mallard Green, Apple Green, Iron Green, Leaf Green, Amber, Baked Earth, Madder Brown, Bark, and Antique White. In addition it contains: Ink Stick Chinese ink, Sepia ink, Indian ink, grinding stone and 3 mop brushes.
