Week 37 – Use a White Pen Prominently on Your Page

This week I decided not to take the challenge literally.  Instead us using a white pen, I decided to sketch a white pen . . . in fact, several of the white pens & markers I use around the studio!

I sketched my treasured Bic Shake ‘n Squeeze, My Sharpie MeanStreak, My Uniball Signo, My LAMY fountain pen, and my Sharpie Paint Marker.  I used Tombow Markers to lightly add watered-down color.  A few splatters of black and gray and TA-DAH!

The highlight of my week is to spend time in the DLP Facebook Group ooohing- and ahhhh-ing over all of your beautiful work!  Can’t wait see what you create this week!

    When I saw the challenge my first thought was to paint a black gesso page then use every white pen I had to write its name. I see that you had a similar idea and it is really beautiful. I just love sketchy pages with light splashes of color – what a cool way to document your currently favorite white pens.

    I find that finding a white pen that actually stays true
    white is a bit of a challenge when I am working in my art journals lol
    Would love your input.
    Thank you
    You Rock

    Great idea I love the shadow effect under the pens! I noticed you didn’t draw an acrylic paint marker. I love that one it’s like painting but in a fine line I feel like I have more control over the paint. Since I’m not so good at fine line painting with white yet. What pen do you use the most? I find that with most of the ones you have here I can’t get them to work very long on acrylic paint. I like seeing what everyone does with this challenge on FB as well. Your idea is very unique. Have a great day!
