Valentine set up the studio in preparation for Inktober when I'll be doing some ink marker pen demonstration videos. He did a fine job. All the pencils and pens are organised where mischievous Tabby Kitten can't knock them over. I think he is proud of his day's work.
I started with a set of six, to try Copic markers. Next, I bought a set of twelve, then twenty-four, then seventy-two, then seventy-two again. Now I'm adding in individual colours that I absolutely must have. Did I mention that these pens are addictive? I've lost all interest in looking at clothing sale catalogs Give me alcohol marker pens, thank you. I'd recommend the comics for a beginner. The colour range in beautiful and the pens are refillable. Long-term, the refillable pens will cost less.
Do you have time mid-week to be creative? If so, what are you working on?
I picked this beautiful tree peony in my garden to paint.
The work in the background is my first ever work using ink marker pens.
As you can see here, Valentine in wearing some yellow pollen from my peony flower. That's partly why I'm not painting in wet oil paint. Fast drying mediums are easier to work with wist a couple cat studio assistants.
But, to my storage units. here they are. They are an ideal size for marker pens.
My selection is a mixture of Copic Sketch, Copic Original, Comic Ciao, Letteraset, Trio, Windsor and Newton Brush Markers, and a Touch.
I almost purchased two for the 72 marker storage bags. Before I'd did that my pens multiplied. It seems that collecting alcohol markers is addictive.
