These are my Watercolour specials. Lately, I’ve been carrying a Nanami Paper standard, tomoe river paper sketchbook and my trusty Kuretake watercolor markers. They go in any of my bags and are light, easy to carry. Since they’re markers, they don’t require much mixing. I’ve also been using an awesome watercolor set I was gifted, along with a water brush. With the water brush there’s no clean up time, and the markers and colour dry pretty fast on the tomoe river paper. I’m loving them.
Alternately, I draw with one of my fountain pens (mostly my Pilot Falcon) and a water soluble ink. Then I take the water brush and just go right over it as seen here. Burnt orange is my favorite colour of all time. This is Diamine terra cotta.

This is the new sketchbook I’ve been carrying around. It’s a Nanami Paper Seven Seas Standard in A5 size. It takes the Clean Color Real Brush by Kuretake perfectly. I love the way ink writes on here as well – you can see the Gray Iroshizuku Kiri Same ink from my Pilot Falcon SF behind the colours.
The watercolour set by Kuretake with waterbrush in the same sketchbook. So easy and portable, I truly love it. I’ve been using it nonstop, everywhere.
That’s all for now! Thank you for reading!
