Review: Kuretake Ultra Fine Pigmented Water-based Brush Pen

I love brush pens and I’m always looking for a brush pen with ink that will withstand watercolor washes and not bleed.

As Few Strokes as Possible…

Pick up a brush pen. Get something down on the page in as few strokes as possible. Make each stroke count and enjoy the movement of the pen across the page. Repeat throughout the day as necessary. (Once an hour is great.) Have a fantastic weekend.
