I did some simple watercolor backgrounds in a 5x8" watercolor moleskine journal. I painted bits of watercolor, then dabbed the pages with a paper towel which made the coolest dots. And the paper towels were looking pretty cool too. Kept adding layers (which blend together, unlike acrylics); the pages got wetter and wetter and more and more... blah. Tempted to tear them out. When they were dry several days later, I liked them! So as the late afternoon sun streamed through the translucent drapes, I sat at the dining room table with my trusty black superfine nib PITT pen and... doodled. It was dreamy. The line was as smooth and consistent as ever, even on a watercolored background.
