My Favourite Tools
Pen and Ink with Watercolour
It seems that electronic devices and drawing implements are tops in my favourite tools category.  This is so true.

I love my iPhone because it can do so much. You can see an earlier version of this challenge that lists many of my iPhone uses. Basically, I use it as a PDA and memory booster. The camera feature is fabulous too because I often myself in need of a camera, especially to capture visual ideas for later art pieces. I even have a gorgeous iPhone case for it.

Back in 2009, I drew an MP3 player as my favourite tool. It still is a favourite tool. I love to listen to audiobooks while I do artwork. However, I tend to use my iPhone now unless it is an incompatible file for the iPhone.

Ever since my husband gave me my first Lamy fountain pen, I have been in love with it. It feels great in my hand, the ink flows beautifully, and I love that I can see when the ink is depleted through the window in its side. I still love my coloured pencils and my watercolours, but there is nothing so pleasurable as drawing with a Lamy Safari pen.
