My love of working with Derwent Inktense continues this week in my surreal octopus in a tree…with chickadees! These are not watercolor, but they can get a similar look. Unlike watercolor these are permanent when dry so you can glaze much like you would with acrylics.

Check out my full review and tutorial showing you how to mix the inktense

Supplies used (my amazon affiliate links)
Inktense blocks 
Inktense pencils 72 
While I am using the whole set, you can mix colors easily with these so if you just want to try them out for the first time, the 12 pack of blocks is a decent set to start with. I’m working on Fabriano Artistico Extra white Hot pressed 300lb watercolor paper for this.
