Combining pens, inks, and watercolor has many wonderful attributes. Adding ink to watercolor can enhance the look of the art, give focus to certain area, add darks, help define shapes, fix and clarify perspective, and provide a opportunity for creative mark making. Part of the fun of this technique is that there are no hard and fast rules. We will experiment with different inks, styles, and techniques in search of the one that works best for you and your art journaling. It is pen fun time!
