Experiment

Well I am back. I have been doing a lot of experimenting with different coloring tools. My comfort zone is Prismacolor pencils and OMS and I have neglected other media, some that I have had for a long time.


For this experiment I used watercolor pencils and markers and watercolor paper. I need more practice, especially with the flower centers, but the objective of the exercise was to compare the tools. They all worked pretty well using a water brush. The Distress markers and Koi watercolor brush pens are limited in the shades of yellow in the sets. Overall I prefer the Inktense watercolor pencils but the Tombow markers come in a close second. I have one more watercolor media to try which is watercolor crayons.

Wow, this is fantastic Jennie, what a very cool project! You've done a wonderful job colouring with the different mediums, I just love the variations in the depth of colour. I agree with Loz, my favourite is the image done with Tombows.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
Cheers,
Beccy
