Watercolor & Ink

Some people say that watercolor is the hardest paint medium to work with, but I love its soft results. I use a variety of paints, including: Winsor & Newton professional watercolor tube paints, Bombay India Ink, Higgins ink (mixed with various amounts of water), Liquitex Acrylic Ink!, Daler Rowney Liquid Acrylic, and Ecoline liquid watercolor.
