Painting With an Elegant Writer Pen

 The first time I had ever seen a piece of colorful art work done with a Speedball Elegant Writer was in a tutorial done by Paul Clark. But recently Diann Zimmerman the owner of the group Watercolor - Beginners and Beyond mentioned it. I finally had to try it.

The Elegant Writer Pen has water soluble ink and is simple to use. Sketch and brush with water and greens and some pink show up. Dab with a tissue or paper towel pink shows up.

So I found a lovely tulip on Pintrest and made an outline. I printed the outline on the computer and traced it on to my watercolor paper with my light pad. The fun began with going over my pencil lines with the pen and then brushing them with water and an occasional dab of the tissue. Watercolor paints or other media can be add after the ink dries permanently,

It was so much fun I did another. 

Ok your turn!
