I hope to see you at the Bloomingdale's in the Bridgewater Commons in NJ. I am their event illustrator and I couldn't be more excited! On Saturday, January 31, from noon to 3pm, I will be sketching on canvas bags for anyone who makes a beauty purchase.
I wanted to invite you to join me as I explore Pentel Aquash Brush Pens and Yasutomo ink. All week long! They not only allow you to create strong ink strokes, but by giving the pen a little squeeze, you will unveil beautiful transparent washes.
I use either a 2h or 6h pencil because I do not want the marks of the pencil to be very visible.
The set of brush pens I purchased has three sizes- broad, medium and fine. Fill them up with water or liquid paint and watch their beauty.
You will need:
Yasutomo Chinese Ink
Pentel Aquash Brush Pens
Watercolor paper or Mixed media paper
**Make sure you fill your pen with water!
To get some of the lighter tones out of the pen, you must squeeze the pen a bit to allow the water to flow the bristles. The more you squeeze the more transparent the stroke. The less water added the more rich and dark the line work.
You can see more of it in my instagrams at www.instagram.com/Elaine.Biss. Did you create something too? Leave a comment below and show me!
