palm beach pink

Trying out mixing sumi with watercolor... does anyone know if I'm doing this right?! I'm a little frustrated that I don't know anything about this new ink but its also exciting to see what I can figure out on my own. Today is my Grandmother's birthday, so I decided to try a shocking pink in honor of her. She always loved pink, and "palm beach pink" in particular - the brightest of the bright. She wasn't your typical grandmother. Glamorous and aloof, the closest she came to baking me cookies was letting me dress up in her collection of Pucci scarves and reminding me that "you can never be too rich or too thin"... as I said, not your typical grandmother.
