Recently back from Japan and still suffering jetlag… So it’s nice to just veg out in the evening and watch the winter olympics in Vancouver. Here are some couch potato ink brush drawings of Olymipic ice dancing using my travel watercolor set and my new-found joy – Japanese waterbrushes.

Waterbrushes are plastic pens that you fill with water. Instead of a pen tip, they have bristles, and you squeeze the water out of the handle to fill the brush tip. Great for travel watercolor journaling and doing nice color washes without running out of liquid. I’ve acquired versions by Niji, Kuretake, and Sakura. Here’s a good article about waterbrushes, and if you’re in the States and want to order some, the Jet Pens website looks like a good source (better order some additional sizes for myself:)
