Sketch before breakfast in a process. Watercolor. View from the porch.
Ooo nice. What is the clear pen/brush at the bottom of the image?
Thank you, Boofredlay. It is Pilot water brush. I go through water brushes like crazy, they die on me from overuse. This is the next best thing in the world after computer.
I have never heard of a waterbrush before. Cool. I just did some research and have to get me a few. How do you typically use them? I saw some filled with ink and others just used to blend.
Thanks for teaching me something new today.
Mainly it is to replace brush and water, so one brilliant Japanese mind combined it in one. It is useful for small sketches in water media like watercolor, water soluble pencils, ink, etc. But tips die fast on grainy paper. Many Japanese companies fill it with ink, useful for manga or black and white sketches. Pentel makes good ones, Pilot, Kuretake and Chinese too. Good luck and, please, show your experiments.
Never mind the water brush in this superb wee offering. You and I seem to have the same type of paint box. What a small world. Would be interesting to know what colours are in your palette
Thanks Nikira. And hey, why did you take off your ring in the photo?
@Bob, my paint box is W&N 12colors, I bought on Ebay. Red is pretty weird there, on the purplish side, gotta add orange in order to make scarlet red. Box is a bit weird, sharp edges. But all I cared 2 palettes and small size. I think it is vintage?
@Boofredlay, Pretend I am not married, :-). Put it back now.
Nikira, where do you get your Pilot water brushes? I have searched the local shops and a couple online areas that service North America and have not found them. What I did find was pretty expensive however. $10-$15 a pop.
@Boofredlay, I got Pilot on Ebay, pretty cheap, I like em, but one is already abused, lost point and leaking. But the best Pentel, just ordered new at JetPens, redeemed certificate. Check it out there. http://www.jetpens.com/search?q=pentel+Aquash
Kuretake good too. I like to experiment so got Bienfang, not that good but I use it for dirty work.
