Watercolour & Dip pen landscape with house.

Demonstration using watercolour and a home-made metal tip dip pen.

Make sure you use a suitable paper thickness for your watercolours, but I didn’t add lots so anything from a 170gsm paper should be okay. Also remember that your dip pen will move better over a smooth paper than a rough. Although I can be fun to see what marks your pen makes on different paper.

Follow along with the image on screen!
