I recently bought a bottle of El Lawrence, knowing that it would be a very dark green to black. What I have found interesting is that once the ink is dry, if I look directly at a word it appears black but the surrounding words have a greenish cast- unless I look directly at them, then they become black, too. As I scan across the page the words right in my center of vision stay black while the rest are slightly green, giving the color an elusive quality. It would seem that the cones (or is it rods?) in the center of my eye aren't as sensitive to slight color shading as the ones on the periphery of my eyeballs' interior.
Anyone else have that experience with this ink?
