Pens & Pencils

Saturday, February 25, 2017 ~ On my last trip to Costco I was attracted to a colorful display of gel pens by GelWriter.  In the past couple days I’ve been testing them out on various papers and combining them with watercolor pens to create art. Around 5 a.m. this morning I ventured over to YouTube to research how other artists and crafters were using the pens and found this introductory video by Cher Kaufmann. Her YouTube channel, The Drawing Desk, is one to binge on. After watching this video on How to Color with Gel Pens, I couldn’t resist subscribing to the channel, followed by diving into my first gel pen art adventure.
