A huge thanks to Norman Rossiter who came all the way from Spalding, Lincolnshire to entertain the Kidderminster Art Society and demonstrate Derwent’s Inktense Pencils and Blocks.
He gave us a fascinating insight into the different ways this medium can be used to create beautiful wildlife and landscape pictures.
Norman particularly likes using Inktense when out sketching as it does not smudge and once water is added, it becomes permanent.
The Blocks feel much like oil pastels and can be used on their sides to
make broad marks or on the edge for finer detail. This can be complimented with the Inktense pencils to give a wide range of marks. When water is added the colours become very vibrant and can be mixed together on the paper. To see more of Norman’s work visit his website here
