Another abstract botanical. This one has gold dot highlights as well as white dots. Fun to do!
I dug out my old Ohto Graphic Liner pens to draw this one. I’d forgotten all about them until I was looking for some new Uniball Unipin pens in my pen stash.
The Ohtos are roller ball pens with pigment ink which is waterproof and fadeproof. The beauty of a roller ball, unlike fibre-tips like the unipins or Sakura Microns, is that the roller ball tip is practically indestructible, even for one with a heavy hand like me.
They work well on the lightly textured hot pressed watercolour paper I used (which is 10″ x 14″ in size).
I applied the colour first, then worked with the way the colours spread and mixed to draw the patterns generally, though I do work rather intuitively.
