Artwork: Zebra Zensations Technical Pen, Fineliner and Mechanical Colored Pencil in a Beige Toned Hahnemühle Watercolour sketchbook
This is the last of the drawings that I did while on vacation visiting family in Florida. We had originally planned that visit for the end of March, and I’m so glad we decided to go in February instead!
Instead, of painting this with watercolor, I decided to test colored pencil and fineliner pen in these books. If you look at the drawing, you can see the texture, and it really is watercolor paper. A bit rough for colored pencil, and definitely hard on fineliner nibs.
You can get some beautiful colored pencil effects, but it takes a little muscle and some time to work the color into the fiber (as it would with any cold press watercolor paper).
I like it, but will probably stick to watercolor in this book. It’s faster and I like it even more.
