Micron ink pens and Windsor and Newton watercolor pans. I really enjoyed this combination.

Missing the beach

Sunny Day

Spent the bulk of the day finding shade and painting today! I am really enjoying allowing the watercolors to work their magic. Where I am typically tighter in my drawing style when using ink pens and then watercolor over the top, I find using just watercolor and brush allows me to be more gestural and simplistic. It’s like a breath of fresh air, a relief (sigh).
