New pencils

My new Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils arrived this week. I tested them out to see what the colors really were. The little swatch on the "eraser end" of the pencil is a pretty inaccurate indicator of what's going to come out the other end.

Making this color test page reminded me of a thought I once had when I was trying to decide if I could rightly say "I am an artist". I had the horrifying realization that, "I am not a real artist...I just like art supplies".

What is surprising to me is, not everybody does!
