A series of posts on products I love to use. Enjoy!
I have tried a lot of pens–all of which will remain nameless–before returning again and again to a super common, easy to find, affordable pen!
I’ve had people ask me which pen I use in my pen and watercolors, believing that I use something fancy. I’ve followed people on social media and taken multiple mini courses hoping to find the next, best pen. To no avail.
I needed a pen to do four things for me:
- stand up to the amount of water I use while painting,
- stand out in a way that makes my color pop,
- survive the texture or “tooth” on the paper I use, and
- not smear through any pencil erasures I might make.
So I’ve settled on the lowly, but quite heroic sharpie ultra fine point!

There are pens with a variety of purposes, widths, and degrees of “water safe”-ness, but this particular one is a workhorse for me!
