Left: Pigeon sketch made with a Faber-Castell Pitt Artist's Calligraphy Pen (black) and painted over with gouache (using a soft squirrel mop and a paper towel to wipe color around). On a 9 x 12 inch page in my in-studio Fabriano Venezia Journal. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
You can't draw enough pigeons.
WIthin the last week I have posted about the Faber-Castell Pitt Artist's Calligraphy Pen and using gouache. So here I'm just letting you know I really mean it.
Paper towels are great fun as tools for swiping and smudging color around after you have put down a brush stroke.
Why are you still reading? Why aren't you painting? Why don't you plan on making a painting a day for the week using this pen and some gouache? That would be a great way to begin to aclimatize yourself to what is surely going to be your favorite medium.
