Autumn means pruning and fallen leaves and new tea mixes to try.

Spring means lush grass and budding trees!

For this Seasonal Combo I've put together two typography exercises from two pages of my ink notebook.

Pelikan 4001 Brillant-Braun, Faber-Castell Loom M, Clairefontaine 90g/m.

Pelikan 4001 Dunkelgrun, Wing Sung 3008 with Lamy F nib, Clairefontaine 90g/m.

Noihvo, all the points to you for Harry Potter! 

Also that's a beautiful picture of the flower, it made me smile, thank you. I will try to take pictures of our first blossoms!

For me, Spring means sakura time, with the beautiful pink blossoms appearing on the almost bare pale green branches. So my March combination of ink is De Atramentis Cherry Blossom and GvFC Olive Green.

Such an amazing drawing! I see many of us have the idea of matching floral colours!

Migo, your drawing is lovely!

 

I was thinking that if I had Diamine Silver Fox and a pastel  pink or violet like Sailor Nioi-Sumire or Sakura-Mori, I would add them to this thread.

Spring time in my part of the world, and the trees are green again. So my ink choices reflect this: brown & green. For the brown ink, my choice went to kyo-iro Stone Road of Gion. The green is my favourite ink of the year 2017 : Robert Oster Verde de Rio.

Kitchen roll sheet, tightly rolled up, and dipped in ink. Works great.

This is... one of the strangest and most ingenious ways to put ink on paper. I salute this technique.
