    The first book on watercolor I bought, and a good one at that:  Complete Watercolorist’s Essential Notebook, by Gordon MacKenzie. Tons of good information.

    Do you mean a refillable technical pen? I have Microns, and Staedtler and Zebra disposable technical pens.  I used to have the refilliable Koh-i-noor, but they always ended up helplessly clogged.  For a while, I used the Copic refillable multiliners, but had to order the refills, and they were almost as big as a pen, so I didn’t feel like I was saving the environment much by using them.  These days I’m using the Zebra pens.

    I’ve got that one as well.  I have lots of the older books.  You can pick up used copies so cheaply at Amazon so I have!

    I just ordered a used copy of Nita Leland’s ‘Exploring Color Coloring Book’, which is printed on watercolor paper so you can do the exercises right in the book.  Since it’s used it may already be painted in, but supposedly there is minimal marking at most, so I’m hoping not.  I have the workbook, but love the idea of painting right in the book.  And it was only $6.10 so it will be worth it even it some of the stuff is done.

    Yes, I mean the old-style refillable technical pens used for drafting back in the day. Prone to clogging, need frequent cleaning, largely replaced by the disposables.

    It takes someone really diligent and frequent use to keep those pens working.  A lot like fountain pens but worse, I think.  I always love the idea of them, though.

    I am so guilty of that. I buy art books, peruse them at my leisure then don’t DO what they suggest in the book. If I did all the exercises I’d be busy now for a year with all the books I’ve never finished!

    I took a mini course from Cathy Johnson in sketchbook Skool, then I was hooked on her style. I bought a specific indigo by W&N just because I LOVED how she used it. Seriously, lol.

    Jennifer, I also don’t actually DO the exercises in all the books I own. It’s always tempting to just buy more, peruse them, and fantasize about the art I could create. LOL
