Loose Watercolors just for fun!

After painting the Unfold watercolor version, I wanted to "loosen up" and try something different - some ink on watercolor paper, then washes. I'm having fun with this! Does anyone have a favorite pen, or ink that they like to use on watercolor paper? I'm using a Pigma Micron 03 (Archival ink) which seems to hold and doesn't run...but I'm wondering if it's the right way to go...

by the way, my family and I just saw "UP" last night - and I must say, what a lovely, inspired, amazing film that was. Not only amazing animation, but the story and character development was fantastic...I am a HUGE Pixar fan. : )
