One of my favorite sketching tools is the Pentel Pocket Brushpen.
I used it for these super-quick sketches when the construction crew was on my street last week.
And for this more leisurely sketch of the kitchen counter after a party.
There are lots of brushpens out there, but nothing else,not even more expensive sable-haired brushpens, do for me what this one does. I don’t think there are any perfect tools, just tools that work best for how each of us draws and paints.
So a firmer pen tip or a different tip might be your magic tool. I like this writeup from Jetpens that compares some of the more popular pens out there. Read it if you’re looking for a brushpen that works for how you draw:
Just curious – the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen only has black ink, right? What did you use for the color in the two sketch examples above? Regular watercolor with a brush?

yes that’s watercolor. I replace the ink the pentel comes with and fill in a waterproof pen ink so i can use watercolor in conjunction with the pen.
