Current Tools

I wanted to share some  of the main gear I have been using lately for my sketches. When doing quick sketches or doodling, I like to use the Pilot C4, Jumbo Triplus or any other kind of pencil. In my watercolors, I have been using lately the Micron with Van Gogh watercolors, sometime with previous auxiliar lines or sketch in pencil.

Pilot G-Tec C4 0.4 (0.2 mm)
Recommended. Non waterproof.

Micron 0.05 mm (SAKURA)

Jumbo Triplus.
A thicker pencil than usual, that gives you a good line when properly sharpened.

Pentel brush.
Refillable water.

Van Gogh Pocket Box Original

I lost my previous watercolors and got this ones shipped from Spain, which are a little bit dirty at the moment. Is is a basic set of 15 exchangeable watercolors.

I usually use a piece of paper of the similar kind of the one I am going to sketch, so I can actually see how the color is going to look.
