THE WINSOR & NEWTON PIGMENT MARKERS



I'm completely obsessed with the new Pigment Markers by Winsor and Newton. As an illustrator who is in her comfort zone with a black pen, these marker pens have inspired me to bring back bursts of colour into my sketchbook.

I love them! They are practical to use when you're on the go. They aren't messy and it's great fun experimenting with shading, colour building and the rectangular and thin nibs. I like to use the pigment markers for drawing people (there are brilliant shades for different skin colours), designing patterns and studying plants.

You're supposed to use them on a special pigment marker paper but I prefer the effects of the ink on Moleskine paper and the happy accidents that happen when the pigments come in contact with the paper.
