Current Favorite Pen

The best part of this sketch was using my new
Pentel Pocket Brush Pen from
Wet Paint: Artists' Materials & Framing

I have probably owned every brush pen on the market,
including a few real Japanese brush pens with real hair. . .
Thinking that sketching with a brush may help painting brush work.

This Pentel Brush Pen has a synthetic tip but it is not stiff like some others I have used.
The best surprise came when I put a watercolor wash on my sketch and it didn't feather out all over the place. Now if I can just keep from losing this one . . .

Hi Lydia;

That looks to be the same kind of pen I have too, and you know... I can't find mine either!
Great drawing, too. I like the colours you used, the seem to complement each other very well.

How's it going?
