Need inspiration? Here are a few fun links!

Yesterday I talked about a great little travel brush for water media.  You can fill the 'handle' with water ~


Check out my post to see what I had to say about this great little brush ~

Want to know what my very most favorite drawing ink in the entire world is?
http://www.dickblick.com/products/holbein-drawing-inks/

This ink flows well and is very dense and rich.  I use a dip pen, not a cartridge pen - so clogging is not an issue for me.  This ink is lucious - hot fudge of the ink world =)

  1. Kathy,

    Thank you for all the links. I signed up to follow Rita. And I have been doing mono prints and didn't know it, but not using the glass just other paper. It is a fun technique!

    I will have to browse the sites more later!

    Thanks for mentioning the aceo challenge too!

    I got a waterbrush with a field kit and promptly got 4 more. Too cool for painting on the spot!
