Koi Watercolors Color Chart

Color chart of my Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box set, 24 ct.



Mmm, loving this 7×7 sketchbook!

A page spread in my Stillman and Birn Zeta Series 7×7 sketchbook. Loving the blues on these pages. Made with the Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box set and outlined with Faber-Castell Pitt brush pens.

Koi Watercolors and the Stillman & Birn

Playing with my new Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box and my Stillman & Birn Zeta 7×7 sketchbook. It really came together after I outlined it with my Faber-Castell Pitt brush pen.




Exercises in Zentangle Doodling

So I got one of those Zentangle books in an effort to spur on some doodling inspiration. The lesson learned from last night’s doodles: sometimes it’s okay to leave them in black and white, cause color doesn’t always look better.

Close-Ups of the Fineliner/Waterbrush Experiments

Closeups of the Color Charts created in my last post. In the last pic, I also used the waterbrush over the fineliners in my old Moleskine Sketchbook – where the paper practically disintegrated.

Staedtler vs Stabilo and the Waterbrush! Holy Cannoli!

Comparison of all my Stabilo 88 and Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pen colors after running over them with a waterbrush. Results? Stabilos blend better in water. This effect is AWESOME!

Fineliner and Fountain Pens AFTER the Waterbrush

Before and After: Stabilo 88’s and Fountain Pen Ink before and after the Waterbrush.
