Another of the Penbbs inks, a fairly new one, someone thought the Chinese characters translate as "Gamboge", a fugitive yellow to yellow-orange color made from garcinia gum resin.

 

I'm not fond of yellow inks, but I can see why folks that do would like this one — a lot of shading.

 

Pen: Edison Premiere (M-steel)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory.

It is more interesting when you do it, then when I tried it. Thank you for the review.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Also, it's pretty well behaved.

Well I do think the images make the ink look darker than it really is. Yellow is never dark.

Gamboge was one of my favorite yellows back when I did watercolor.

 

Monitors being what they are (or it's possibly my color perception), would you say that this shades to tan/gold or to orange? It does look gold-ish in your samples to me.


It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Gamboge, or more accurately a modern New Gamboge replacement, was always on my watercolor palette. Great color.

 

Definitely gold/deep yellow. No orange.
