Prismacolor Premier Pencils – but what color is it?

August 10, 2014 § 1 Comment

This is my first attempt to manage my collection of Prismacolors. I used a color wheel www.creativecolorwheel.com which has eighteen divisions. I found this process a great learning experience and well worth the time.

Niji Storage

I use Niji storage rolls for pencils and hang on my studio wall with Command hooks.
For travel, the rolls easily roll up and fit into an REI zippered, soft fabric lunch box.

My background as a black and white film photographer has taught me to always look closely for light, shadows and distractions, something out of the ordinary, details. When I photographed the orange rust growing on the old wall, I knew that I needed to see deeper. Experimented with Derwent’s pencils, challenging because are so soft and low contrast. I did add some Inktense color too. I really like the way graphite moves when water is applied. Both the Graphitints and Inktense are water soluble.
