More tiny abstracts: inktense, Derwent studio pencils and Fisher 400 paper

Another in series of tiny abstracts, playing with the interaction of colour, shape and space

This one was done using Derwent's studio pencils over an inktense underpainting, on Fisher 400 paper.   I like the way that Derwent's Coloursoft pencils work with this paper better, though these worked well, the Coloursofts were richer when used like this (not so on normal paper).

Working with the underpainting allows me to create the same sort of effects that I can achieve in oils - changing subtly or overlaying very different colour opaquely,  and is a really useful way of playing with colour and ideas.

and another variation with the same materials

 and there's more .....

I may arrange them in a grid, keeping each element small with the grid black or a deep linking colour - decisions decisions ....


what do you think?
