    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 1 The Art Shed enabling you to develop your creativity Derwent Inktense and Coloursoft Tutorial
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 2 The original photo came from a secondhand book I found about the development of the Jaguar car, so its not a picture I took but I thought it would make a good tutorial
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 3 Introduction This tutorial aims to show you the basics of using the Derwent Inktense and Coloursoft range of pencils. It introduces you to using the two mediums together for achieveing good effects. If you are new to the Inktense pencils, they are watersoluable ink pencils, and when dry they are permanent unlike watercolour paints. They can be used as a pencil, with a brush and other techniques. The Coloursoft pencils are wax based, very soft and easy to blend pencils and come in a wide range of colours. Check my website, for other tutorials on using these two mediums. Hope you enjoy this tutorial and please feel free to contact me via the website

    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 5 If you are not confident about your freehand drawing, use one of the transfer techniques such as tracing paper to put your initial layout on paper.
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 6 I made the outline of the car much darker than I would normally work with so that it can be reproduced here, but usually it is quite faint.
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 7 I almost always work with the Inktense pencils first, and by using a brush directly on the pencil. Note the long point on the pencils, I use a knife to expose a good length so I can use a brush.
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 8 Using the Ionian Green Inktense, I start laying on the first washes, its important you don't over do the colour strength to start with. Like watercolour painting, you get a better effect and depth of colour through layering of the washes.
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 9 Gradually outline the shape with tentative washes to build a feel for the shape, the lights and darks. Note the difference in tone of the cover at the back to indicate some of it is behind the windscreen
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 10 Next I start working on the seat and the windscreen, and on the headlights. Using the Coloursoft pencils I indicate the tyres

    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 12 I develop the painting by adding some more details such as the rearview mirror, and establish the tones of the cover and the back seat (note the tone difference )
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 13 The texture of the Coloursoft pencils makes them ideal for rendering the tyres, and picking out small details such as the front grille
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 14 I start to develop the shadows under the car, this is a number of Coloursoft washes (pencil layers are also called washes!) to build up the depth of colour
    • Copyright Mo Awkati 2013 15 The last stages are finished with the Coloursoft pencils. Note the tracing paper which I use under my hand to prevent smudging and dirtying of the painting. Using tracing paper allows you to see what is covered under your hand
