I took about 7 days off from posting any work. I have been working on projects for others but nothing for myself. So I decided to kick it off again by posting a warm up sheet. This is just some warm up drills that I like to do when I sit down for the first time at my table every day. I do it first in pencil (swipe to see) and then in ink. I like to do my warm up drills with the nib and pen that I will be using first. If I switch to a different pen and nib, I will run through the drills again. It helps my hand get used to the different pen and nib. It also allows me to either break in a new nib or determine if the used nib is getting to old, as in this case. I have to retire this Hunt 101. 😢 It always makes me sad to retire a nib. I don't throw away any nibs. They just go into my retired nibs jar. 😊 .

In love with this summer floral beauty by the awesome @calligrafikas! We especially are wowed by Drew’s way to integrate the flashy Neon and dewy Pearl palettes with a standard palette of colors—the balance is super chic. How would you integrate a neon palette in your own crafty world?👌🏻
These creamy neons and luscious pearls are our new painting favorites for summer(we especially import them from Japan) Kissho’s watercolor pigment quality is top of the top—bar none! Check them out in our Etsy Shop!! 🌈🌈 ・・・ . .##.
