Coloring Book with PITT Artist Pens

Coloringbook - 3

Hi Artsy Friends!  Jen here to share a fun way to destress from crazy times!  This time of year is full of sports, end of the year school events, and lots of stress!  I am sitting at a child's sports practice at least 3 times a week!  So, I loved bringing something to do when I'm waiting.  I packed up a bunch of PITT Artist Pens in a variety of colors and a fun coloring book to take with me for soccer practice.


For this page, I used PITT Artist Pens in Greens/Blues colors to start coloring the waves and water in this image.  I also used a water brush to create different values of the blues. You have to work quickly with this technique but if you add water to the shape and then touch the PITT Artist Pen down in the water, it allows the color to spread and mix.  Coloring the tip of the water brush with the pen also allows me to color in areas with a variety of color tints too.  As the color mixes with the water on the brush tip, the color lightens.

I had fun creating the water effect with the PITT Artist Pen and the waterbrush.  It was very relaxing and therapeutic!  I felt myself drifting off the a very quiet and calm place.   Coloring is so relaxing!

Here you can see the details of how I applied the water and the pen ink, which is water soluable until it soaks into the paper.  The ink is India Ink so it's permanent once dried.

The finished page was so pretty with the cool colors in the background and the warm colors popping forward on the fish.  I loved using different techniques here.  I added touches of metallic PITT Artist Pens to the frame and fish.  Just touches to create some shimmer and shine!

I hope you will grab an adult coloring book and relax with some of our PITT Artist Pens to color and unwind! It put me in such a good mood and I will be doing it again soon and the next practice!
