Felt-tip pens

There is an extensive range of this type of drawing instrument available today, allowing one to execute both solid black line work as well as large areas of colour.
One of the advantages of felt-tip pens is that they have their own reservoir of ink, which dries quickly and, when it is indelible, colour can be applied straightaway.
Their drawback is that their quick-drying but ‘permanent’ marks are difficult to correct later on.
