I’m still working out the kinks with this brush pen. For one, I’m not waiting long enough enough for it to dry before adding watercolour. I mixed up a nice clean colour for the flesh tone but when I painted the face, the black ink melted into it and muddied up the colour. Maybe the solution for this would be to work on two drawings at once, letting the ink dry on one while starting the next. Also, I have to stop myself from adding too much tone with the pen because I think it works best when the darks are built up in layers of watercolour rather than dry brush ink. Still much experimentation to be done with this pen.
