This is a pen and ink fish I did today following an online lesson. I used Derwent Watercolor pencils for the color. I just started 're-learning' pen and ink recently, and this is the first of my attempts that I've been truely happy with. Just had to share:)

I saw that page! I ended up doing something very similar in my sketch book right after that. The colors are great. Keep up the good work.

Wow...this is gorgeous.... you should be very proud:clap: :clap:
You got a fabulous transition between the colours....did you use dry W/C pencils and then wash them with water or did you use wet pencils?:cat:
Also....would you mind posting a link to the online lesson.... I would love to do it

Thank you all for your kind comments! I was so happy with my first fish, that I started another one last night. As soon as I can get it photographed, I'll post it.

Thanks again:D :D :D

Thank you, Monica, for posting the link for me. I just noticed another lesson there under pen and ink, for a pair of zebras. Looks quite challenging, at least to me, but I'm going to give it a go next! Here's the link for that lesson, if anyone wants to try it:

Now to answer the other questions:)
I used dry watercolor pencils to begin with, for the lighter washes, and then took my waterbrush and stroked it across the tip of the watercolor pencil and applied it to the paper for the more intense colors. I'm still rather new at this so I hope my answers make sense:)

Thanks Monica:D I am off to try it in a minute.

Lamb....thank you so much and yes...your answer makes perfect sense. I have all sorts of problems with the W/C pencils:rolleyes:
Thanks for the link to the Zebra :D
