“When I’m on the road with my sketchbook, I need to capture sceneries quickly with a few brushstrokes. I skip sketching with a graphite pencil and use Pitt Artist Pens directly. Faber-Castell India ink pens are permanent and therefore perfectly suitable for Mixed Media techniques. Later on, I can calmly add watercolours to the drawing.”
