The dip pen and ink led to frustration and too much ink bleed into the watercolor during the Color Scheme Game Workshop.  I can’t expect everyone to have the same passion I have for dip pens and fountain pens.

Thanks to a student’s suggestions, I tested a fine line Sharpie marker to see if it would bleed.  It did not.  Rather than struggling with ink blops and long drying periods I’m switching to permanent markers for the half day and single day workshops.
