I couldn't resist working on a ZIA using the techniques I've been learning during the MCC Time to Tangle with Colours course. I decided to use warm colours this time & to work on watercolour paper (Daler-Rowney Langton 300gsm Hot Pressed Extra Smooth) as opposed to the Canson XL Series Mix Media 98lb/160g paper. The Tombow inks move well (but differently) with water on either paper though they do seem extra 'bright' somehow on the watercolour paper. I also discovered that using a conventional Sable brush as opposed to a synthetic water reservoir brush helps to eliminate any hard lines & moves the colour about more effectively.
Again I have used my Black Page Album Moleskine for mounting the squares.
