Testing out Winsor & Newton's New Pigment Markers: An event at Cowling & Wilcox

Last month I recived a very happy-making email from Cowling & Wilcox, asking if I wanted to try the top secret new Pigment Markers by Winsor & Newton. My answer was yes. You know I love pens. And secrets.

I was sent a 24-pack of the markers which I immediately began experimenting with - you can see some of my drawings here.  The official product launch was on November 7th, and as artist-in-residence at the Shoreditch branch of Cowling & Wilcox, I hosted a demonstration afternoon where I showed shoppers how to get the most out of the pens. Much fun (and chocolate) was had!

The markers feel halfway between drawing with paint markers, and painting with watercolours.  They're certainly different to anything I've used before and I had a lot of fun with them! Thank you so much to the team at Cowling & Wilcox for inviting me to take part.
