Playing with Aqua Pens

pear watercolor lisa fulmer

I work with Marabu Creative and they have these cool dual-tip markers - Graphix Aqua Pens. I had fun drawing and coloring this abstract pear.

I got these nice watercolor effects by pulling the color from the marker lines with a wet brush, and also by wetting small areas of the paper first. I also blended pale colors from the marker ink by mixing it with water on a glass palette. The watercolor paper I used is very thick and textural.

Pears are usually my go-to subject for playing with new mediums, I just love the organic shape!

  1. Very cool! I bet you have quite the collection of pears - that would make an interesting collage!
