Red Vented Bulbul

Tip:I use a cloth to rub off regularly, the residue that forms on the tip of the nib of the ballpen.
This helps in keeping the pen strokes fresh and sharp! Let me know if you try this and it is helpful.

Humble Ballpen, it is great tool to work which not hard on the pocket of artist.Just that one has to put in the time to work out the pros and cons with this medium. It is easy to achieve depth with this medium when compared to other mediums.

I work in layers with this medium just like watercolors, from light to dark.
