Video Series: One Flower, Eight Ways – Session 2

One Flower Eight Ways

CLICK HERE to list all videos in this series.

Hi All!

Welcome back for video #2 in the series! Today I am watercoloring with Inktense Pencils. I love the smooth look you get, as compared with the dry pencils.

This video is a little longer than the first video. I think I’ve improved on the lighting, so I’m happy about that. I’ll work on keeping it a little shorter next time.

Here is a photo of the final results:

One Flower Eight Ways

And now the video:

See you next time!

    Thank you for instructing on how to use the inktense. I’m also learning about the shading with pencils. Love your videos.

    Thank you, Darlene, for such a well-done & informative video! I have been asked to do a demonstration for a painters’ group on painting for card making. I’ve been at a loss on what to do that might interest them (these are “fine art” type picture painters)! You’ve given me some ideas. I don’t know yet when I’ll be doing this demo, but I will definitely put this video in my favorites for future inspiration! Thanks again! 🙂

    Great series Darlene! One request- at the end of the videos can bring in the previous samples and put them side by side and remind us which is which. I would really like to compare them on camera. Thanks so much!!

    OOooooo…..light pressure. Gotta try that. Also, wipe off the brush often. Thanks for the pointers.

    Love the results on this one Darlene, but I’m very partial to water coloring. I really loved the intense colors you used, this flowers look amazing in them.

    Darlene, Love this series. Thanks for advise on using the Inktense pencil. I away feel I need a very sharp pencil and can’t wait to try using them.

    Hi Darlene, I can’t believe a year has gone by and my membership is due. I still don’t have a pay pal account and I don’t plan to get one. Can I send you a check like I did last year? I don’t want to miss any of your posts. I have really enjoyed being a member and I have learned so much from you.
    Please send me your new address and I will mail a check tomorrow.
    Thanks you,Joyce Mangels

    Thank you, Darlene. I like to watch you color and hope that some of your talent will rub off on me.

    It’s amazing how much less pencil you use when you apply water with it…and to get the same vibrance dry, you had to use more pencil pressure. They really are so neat the way the water sorta melts the color so that it easily blends. I could watch this all day! LOL Thanks for sharing!! =)
