Elegant Writer – What?

I’ve been wanting to do today’s sketch since I saw a YouTube video by CeeCee Creations. I got these pens from Michaels and couldn’t wait to sketch.  

 Elegant Writers are calligraphy pens by Speedball and they do this neat thing when you get the ink wet. The ink bleeds. But it doesn’t just bleed black or gray though. It bleeds this really pretty green and fuschia. Not sure how, it’s all in the ink composition and I love the results.  

  Pretty, right? And all I did was do my sketch using the Fine 2.0 mm tip and take a waterbrush and go over the lines to wet the ink and make it bleed. 

Materials Used:

  • Elegant Writer pen by Speedball
  • Waterbrush from The Paint Spot
  • 300 Series Strathmore Mixed Media Journal

(Yes, my journal has been well used. Lots of mixed media spreads in here. One day I’ll post them all.)
