This weekend I had some more play time with the elegant writer pen, it’s one of those items I forget about and then have a surge of paintings featuring its talent. However although it produces some great effects when water is added, it also has a slightly uncontrollable nature. Sometimes it does not go to plan, something we have to accept from time to time. With watercolour I can sometimes correct mistakes, removing unwanted marks with a damp brush once dry. However this technique does not work with the black elegant writer pen, once it has been wetted, and dried, that’s it, it’s there for good!
So here is my mistake hare, which I may well try to improve on at a later date. Just so I didn’t feel to disillusioned with the pen, I started a new hare, using the black and brown elegant writer pens. This time things worked out better. Both have had the addition of watercolour….brown! I just love the blue and pinks that are created with this amazing pen once the water is added.
