WDE May 31 2013

Haven't taken part for quite awhile at the weekly All Media events at WetCanvas.  This week Maureen and the moderators put together a great group of images from the RIL..

I recently received  a great gift from Derwent  Art Academy!!! A box of 18 Ink Intense Pencils in a great wooden box!!! So I did one sketch trying out these new pencils!!!
