Lettering with Pitt Pens

Today I am lettering with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens! These are brush pens filled with rich saturated colors of India ink. I love to letter with these on watercolor paper because of the natural effect that the ink makes with the pressure changes. 
When you are increasing pressure in the downstrokes, the nib will transfer more ink to paper creating that subtle darker ombré effect! I also love these pens because of the huge variation they allow in pressure. I just LOVE the think upstrokes and thick downstrokes!
I used the colors: May Green 170, Phthalo Blue 110, and Middle Purple Pink 125.
