Forgive my reviewing an ink that has been reviewed thoroughly before. This is my first review and I wanted to start with an ink that I have a lot of experience with. 

 

The written review was done in the Rhodia dotpad. The Titmouse sketch was done with J. Herbin's Terre de Feu and Cacao du Bresil in a Stillman & Birn Gamma Series sketchbook. 

 

Edited to add color wash detail, which I previously forgot to upload. Reasonable care was taken to ensure color accuracy.

Beautiful artwork! Well, I not dislike this ink, although I still need to give it some trials. The Parker Urban fine nib was to fine for it, I find this ink a bit dry.

Thank you both. I find the ink to be of medium wetness in my pens.

 

I've added a detail of the color wash, which I had forgotten to upload.

Your artwork really makes these reviews.

I'm happy this was recently revived so that I stumbled across your review and sketch! Both are very well done, and the sketch complements the review (which complements the sketch). JHerbin should consider hiring you.

The sketch is marvelous!

On my screen Terre de feu swatch looks a dead ringer for Waterman Absolute Brown.

On the other hand I am surprised Alt-Bordeaux looks so dark and brown - I'd always thought of it as faded pinkish purple...

Jason, a sketch like that could help J Herbin sell a lot of ink. They should commission you to do demos. Charming titmouse, and I love the bokeh effect of the background.

I have been educated.
