The Four Elements

Four elements: paper, pen, water, paintbrush

Even though I have an ample supply of paints, watercolors, colored pencils, etc.  and a dedicated place to create my artwork, I like to keep it simple most of the time.

This drawing is a close up of a corner in my visual journal.

It’s done with a PaperMate Flair pen that I bought at Target.

The pen is not waterproof and it is easy to create shadows and shading when the line is wet with a paintbrush dipped in clean water.

We don’t need a lot of tools to be creative.

The first step is to be creative with what we have.
