Hi Friends 🙂

How to Get Reference Photo

You can download a reference photo from “Paint And Draw Together”  Challenge 74 – Celebrate Small Things that Make You Happy and follow along. Suitable for complete beginners or simply as a practice.

Every Saturday I will be uploading a new video demonstrating a simple painting, and you are invited to follow along and learn and paint.

Art Supplies I Use for Pen and Wash

Paper: 7″x5″ Arches 100% cotton, 140lb cold press watercolor paper –

Ink Pen: In my videos I usually use one of the following

* Waterproof Demco India Ink (pigmented, opaque) and dip pan with a super fine Speedball 104 nib.

* Waterproof Speedball Super Black India Ink (100% carbon black pigmented, opaque) and dip pan with a super fine Speedball 104 nib.

* Micron 005 waterprrof archival pigmented ink pen.

* Uniball 0.5 mm black ink pen (waterproof, manufacturer says archival and lightfast).

* Alternatively, you can use any waterproof, archival, lightfast, pigmented ink & dip pan with an extra fine nib.

I hope you enjoy this video and find it useful!

Thank You!

Option 1: Login/Register with Google (recommended)

Option 2: Login/Register with PADT Site (Wordpress login)
  • How to Register & Sign In


    Option #1: If you have used "Sign in with Google" button to register the first time, you are welcome to continue using Google for future sign in also. Google does not send PADT website your password - so PADT in this case does not store any password for you.

    I would recommend using this method as the best way to register and also to sign in to PADT.


    Option #2: If after you have registered using "Sign in with Google" button - and then later you want to sign in directly - you will have to click on the "Forgot your password" link at the bottom of the login form which will send you a mail (with a link) to create a password for PADT website. You can choose a password (which can be different from your Google password), and you can use it to sign in directly in PADT website with your username/email and new password. However you will continue to have the ability to sign in with Google whenever you want.
