Experimenting with watercolour pens

This has been fun. I have done some new drawings utilizing watercolour pens. They do blend and I find it is so similar in application, that if you do not want something to bleed into something else to wait until the area is dried before applying. As with regular watercolour, you must, I repeat MUST save your whites (paper). You also must start with the light colours and work towards dark- what I call giving depth to the painting.

Start with something small. Draw a simple picture and experiment. Do not skimp on paper quality. I find that the heavier paper allows for a more colourful and detailed painting.

Happy Creating!
