Blending Pitt Artist Pens

Blending brush pens can be so fun, and is definitely one of my favorite things to do! Typically this is done with a water based pen, which makes for easy blending, wet or dry, but since Pitt pens are waterproof and not water based, all you have to do is be sure to blend while the ink is still wet!

 

I like to start with a very light color, such as light indigo 220 (pictured here), this way when you use the colors, it's sort of just like coloring in your letters. Then you can focus more on the blending of colors and less on the lettering. 

 

Once you have your lighter lettering down, use a small amount of your darker color up top (phthalo blue 110), and slowly pull it down using a lighter color (phthalo green 161). Do this one letter at a time, to be sure your ink stays wet while blending. If it happens to dry, just re-wet it with your first color. 

 

Have fun!

 

 Happy Blending!

2. Trace you letters with your Black 199 PITT artist pen.

3. Using your Black 199 PITT artist pen again, draw spider webs coming from the top corners of your page and attaching to your letters. I also added a little spider hanging down.

Fall Magic

A little fall magic today, with the help of stencils and watercolor pencils!

 

What you'll be needing:

  • Mixed media paper
  • Pencil/eraser
  • Stencil
  • Goldfaber aqua watercolor pencils
  • Paintbrush
  • Pitt Artist brush pen (Indian red)
  • Pitt Artist fine liner XS

Gently erase the dark lines, so the image is very light. This way you won't have to erase once the watercolor is down!

Then, color in with your Goldfaber watercolor pencils.

Wet your paintbrush and start painting over the colored pencil. Watching the pencil turn into creamy paint on the paper is always my favorite part.

Using your Pitt Artist brush pen (here I used Indian red, the PERFECT color for fall), letter your favorite quote.

Go in with your fine liner XS Pitt Artist pen and add little details. Here I did a rough outline of the leaves and I added a small shadow on the lettering.

Don't forget to have fun with it!

Used my cute Connector watercolors for this ode to my favorite coffee! These colors are super saturated and bright! Perfect for painting happy and bright things such as a pumpkin heart on a latte. 🧡🧡 I love these paints because you can mix and match the colors you’ll be using and create your own temporary custom palette with so much ease. Love them! 

 

Finished this illustration off with my Pitt Artist Pens in Brush tip and Small tip.

FCDMC_September2018_Halloween_PittPens_1_MouS

Now that you have finished coloring the main design, it's time to fill in softer colors to the negative spaces. For that, I am using the Goldfaber Color pencils. I am staying with the same color palette that I chose for my PITT Pens. For a soft look, add the colors with gentle pressure and blend into one another.


FCDMC_September2018_Halloween_PittPens_1_MouS

Finally, color around the entire piece with the Grey 273 Goldfaber color pencil to finish.

I hope you enjoyed our coloring exercise and once you finish, you can display the piece in a frame as seasonal festive decor for your home!

Fall leaf with watercolor pencils

Fall is finally here! It's time to celebrate by bringing out all of the fall colors again!

IMG_5265

 

Today you'll be needing:

 

Start by using your pencil to sketch a maple leaf. Lightly erase the dark lines until they're barely visible.

Take your watercolor pencils and start coloring in the leaf.

Use a wet paintbrush and go over the colors to blend them all together.

Once dry, use the same colors to go over the edges to make them a bit darker.

Use a brown pencil to draw the veins of the leaf. Go over that with your paintbrush as well.

Now use your Pitt Artist pen to letter your quote!
