Artwork: Ecoline Earth & Pastel Watercolor Brush pen sets in Hahnemühle Report & Art book
Before I get into that, I wanted to share that a wonderful friend pointed out that these pens are refillable, the nibs can be reversed when the first side wears down, and you can dip the pens into the bottles of Ecoline ink (yes! These beautiful colors come in bottled inks as well!) in order to blend colors, and the pen nibs will clean themselves after a few strokes.
These really are nice pen sets!
I bought the:
- Saffron Yellow
- Yellow Ochre
- Gold Ochre
- Deep Ochre
- Pastel Rose
- Pastel Green
- Pastel Blue
- Pastel Violet
- Cold Grey Light
I absolutely love the Earth set. The colors are rich and vibrant yet still earthy and the colors move and blend like watercolors should.
The Pastel set has some beautiful colors … except … grey? What about yellow. You really need yellow. And while I didn’t expect these colors to be deep and intense – they are pastel, after all – I was expecting the watercolor effect. These colors didn’t move much, they are a lot more like using markers. Still beautiful, especially when used with colors in the other sets.
