Weekly watercolour

Today at my watercolour painting group.

I used a dip calligraphy pen and India ink for the outlines, instead of the Pitt technical pen that I had been using. Not as much control with the nib pen, and it does not dry as quickly, but the line is more interesting and the ink has a gloss that is a nice addition to the painting.
