New Moleskine watercolor book

So far I'm really enjoying the paper. Not so great with Micron Pigma pens (see 3rd sketch), but it seems fine with a softer nib pen (1st & 2nd sketches). I can't remember the brand right now, but it has water soluble sepia colored ink.

I think I like the washy effect the drawn line gets after adding the watercolor. Since the ink isn't waterproof, it runs and drips and gets all mushy, which keeps the finished sketch from looking too stiff, which my drawings have a tendency towards anyway.
