I coloured all this in with water colour pencils. I seem to have been collecting these for about 25 years, in fact the sea was done with Staedtler Karat which I bought when I lived in Germany in about 1987. They are still in good shape and still work very well after all these years. I also have Derwent Watercolour, both the artist and the student types. I have 16 Inktense, which are fabulous colours, and a few others that I bought to try out when I saw them. As a beginning artist, I have to say these are great, so easy to use, always give great results whether you add water or not.
Tomorrow I have been asked to work on Tarot from 10am until 3pm, which means that between phone calls I can sit here and have a go at the new Diva Challenge. I was thinking about it today and found my white gel pen - which obviously doesn't work anymore as it has not been used for a very long time. I tried scribbling with it and holding it in water to no avail. So I think it might be Derwent pencils to the rescue again.
