Washing color inks

I’ve been wanting to use color inks on location, but still haven’t found a practical way to take my inks around. I would love to have separate pen brushes, but apparently the ink would clog the brushes.

This was actually a color test done with Higgins inks with a Cotman brush; then the random blots remembered me of a plaza in Old San Juan and from memory sketched over the washes with a dip pen with black ink. It’s not close to the real thing, but it was a fun exercise. I need to somehow get those colors to the field.
