In answer to questions regarding my swatch cards, I make these myself to a set size so that they fit snugly into my reference albums. Here's question for you. If I got packs of these produced, would you buy them?

 

Thanks for the suggestion! It sounds like a great idea. Do you think you could tell us how much would such packs appoximately cost when sent abroad? I don't have many different inks, but I like the idea of trying to make the swatch cards.

 

I certainly intend to take the online tutorial some time (it'll be only possible in summer), and if I do, I'll make sure to post my results here.

I've done it! The good paper made all the difference. Apologies for potato quality but my phone camera lens cover has gone through much abuse during its long life.

Excellent! Now, if you want to take your new found art talents further, you can get 20% of my online course if you use the coupon code on my website! The wonderful thing about fountain pen ink art is that success is certainly not guaranteed for recognised artists. The best results are achieved by those who are patient and let the ink do its thing. Keep going!

Excellent, Eclipse!

Here are mine. The photography is bad, the paintings worse. Clearly I need more practice! Luckily I have paper samplers and scraps.

First ones, Montblanc Black, St. Armonds paper, and Monteverde Moonstone on Bockingford paper:

Second, Lamy Petrol, Twinrocker paper:

Noviho - is that a Platinum 3776 Briarwood? Absolutely gorgeous. It's on my list to acquire soon.

Of course I forgot about the Platinum premium brand. That's a really beautiful classic pen.

I like the second one. It looks like big trees, trunks and all, reflected in a lake.

Thanks! I like the way Lamy Petrol separates into different colors. Maybe I'll try a few more. :)

Nick - I used your basic technique but got a bit carried away.  I am no artist, but I love the colors in this ink!  

Arches watercolor paper 160lb.

I hope to play around with Sailor Manyo Haha soon using your technique.  I will post upon completion.

Not a landscape, but fun to play with this ink.
