Watercolor from a Pen

You can draw a watercolor like texture from a pen with water soluble ink. Interestingly, a lot of pens have water soluble ink to varying degrees.

In the example below I used a BiC Bu3 Grip Gel pen.

There are a couple methods you can use to draw color out of the ink. The method I like is to scribble on a piece of scrap paper then brush a little clean water into the scribble to load the brush. Use a cheap brush until you know how the ink will effect it.
