Watercolor marker pens


I have never tried watercolor painting before because to looked too difficult but when I saw an advert for watercolor marker pens and thought 'I can do that.'

Looking on Ebay and Amazon the choice is bewildering. There are so many different brands which vary considerably in price.

So basically my question is which ones should I buy? I don't mind spending a bit more on something which is good quality but also I don't want to waste money if a cheaper alternative will be just as good.

Thank you for your help.

It’s been a while since your post, so you might have already made your selection. However, from the casual research I’ve done on watercolor related media like markers, Arteza water based markers seem to work well. It just takes a different sort of technique for a “good” piece.

There are also Koi or Windsor & Newtown seem the most true to traditional watercolor pigments. I have 2 W&N markers myself and though I don’t have any real application for them besides maybe monochromatic value work (I didn’t purchase any cohesive colors, just a brown and an indigo that I like the look of), I do like them for a sketchy thrown-together looking drawing.
