i drew this one some years ago, using a nib charged with watercolor washes, the same color i after used to paint petals and leaves.
I often nowadays use nib charged with watercolor in order to write calligraphy, the result is very pleasent, and it is easier then writing with nib and ink.

what do you think about?

ciao, rapolina.

Ciao Rapolina, I've never heard about using pen nibs with watercolours but your flower is lovely. I like it very much.

This was an idea of mine (but of course other had it, i'm sure), as i wanted to write in color when i studied calligraphy (by myself). As i had no many inks and i wanted peculiar hues, i tried with watercolors, and i worked! moreover, WCs spreads on paper less than inks.
when i was trying to paint flowers, i thought at nib...

ciao and tanks to everyone for nice (and very appreciated) comments. :)

ciao, rapolina.
