This is my favorite green when I don't care about resistance.

I must say that my experience of this ink varies from pen to pen , and can be much darker than this.
I like all three Visconti inks I have (Green, Blue, Burgundy)

I should note that this is very similar to Pelikan Green. They are indeed delightful in small doses, but too much for an entire page of text. For regular writing, I use Noodler's Forest Green (as included in the scan). I haven't tried mixing inks yet, perhaps will do that when I have more time to play with inks. For now, just alternating among the inks that I already have is
I agree, the Pelikan and Visconti green are similar in color. And you're right, neither are an ink I'd want to fill a page with, I use them for markup of other text when red is just a little too much.

Please use only my FPN name "Gran" in your posts. Thanks very much!

I went back to compare the two and have to say that I agree with these distinctions completely. Thanks!
Thanks very much for your nice review. I found the Visconti green to have more than a touch of blue, and also to be more saturated, and wetter than the Pelikan green.

Maybe it's just me. Dunno!
