Color chart of my Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box set, 24 ct.
Tag Archives: Stillman & Birn
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.
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.
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.
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!
Before and After: Stabilo 88’s and Fountain Pen Ink before and after the Waterbrush.
Testing out the new Stillman & Birn 7×7 Zeta Series sketchbook with my Derwent Inktense pencils! The thick paper took the waterbrush well, but did tend to pool and not dry as quickly. It also started to rub a little bit towards the end of the color chart. Otherwise, I really love how these turned out and really love the size and binding of this sketchbook.
