What you will need:
I love to play with colour and water. So the Derwent Inktense paints are one of my favourites to use. For today I have chosen to paint a lighthouse. After I have lightly sketched the scenery with a pencil, I go over the outlines with a black Line Maker, leaving the clouds in graphite pencil. I will start to create the colour I want in the paint pan mixing palettes, before I start to paint the sky.
Then add the shade of the clouds under the blue sky. Be aware that when you touch the wet surface, it will mix, so leave a line of dry paper between the sky and the cloud shadows.
Then I add colour to the buildings and landscape with a different Derwent Push Button Waterbrush. There are several sizes available and I’m using the Large Chisel Tip and the Large Tip for this piece. When the sky is fully dry, I can place colour in the water directly to the horizon.
Here is the final result.
Good luck with practising with the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Sets and enjoy creating – there’s always time to add a bit of colour to your life!
