I did experience one of the most dreaded casualties in pen work with the drip of a drop of ink on the crow in the sketch stage. Luckily it was in an area that could be completely darkened. Whew! I have not had that happen in a very long time...
I love these Daler Rowney FW Artists acrylic inks I have been using. They are great to draw with when you know you are going to watercolor over them... They also have a nice selection in colors at our Hobby Lobby! I have included the sketch stage as well as the finished watercolor.
