So, I bought new toys!! Tombow Dual Brush markers. I’m so excited to try them out. It’s funny, I grabbed a prepackaged set first, the “Brights Palette” and then added on supplemental colors individually. All the colors I picked from the display, thinking ‘ooh, THIS is pretty!’ – were already in the pack. I had to laugh. And then I spent half an hour debating the extra colors, and still came away without a true red, blue, or emerald green. Ah, art supply shopping.
Of course, first thing I did was create a color chart in my Stillman & Birn Zeta series 7×7 notebook (available from Goulet Pens). I hope to get time to play with them more soon!
While I was thrilled with the color wash possibilities of the Stabilo 88’s, I hadn’t tried out the Stabilo 68 Mini Pens yet. Here are the results in my Stillman and Birn Zeta Series 7×7 sketchbook. I am pleased to see the color wash effects are just as pretty!
Pretty colors, pleased with this.

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.
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.
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.
