Lake Creighton

I saw this awesome instructional video by Karlyn Holman on the Cheap Joe's youtube channel on how to make incredible and unique washes using the Speedball Elegant Writer calligraphy pens.  I never would have thought to try this, but it is so cool. This past Sunday was a beautiful day.  The perfect day for a hike and a painting. So I tried out this technique of dropping watercolor washes on top of the activated pen ink.  Quite surreal and different than anything else I have ever done before.
