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.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
