Of color and paper.
I'm a devotee of black and white artwork but I enjoy an occasional foray into coloring my work. The red is FW "scarlet" and "flame" inks and the blue is a Prismacolor "Copenhagen Blue" marker. I'm going to need to purchase some more colored inks and/or some Copic markers. I've heard a lot of good things about Copic markers but they are expensive. The paper I'm using here is a rag vellum finish 11x14 sheet of Bristol. It's a good paper but it's tough on my brushes so I may save it for pieces that will be pencil only.
