I'm not saying that London is always grey but filling a pen with Callifolio Gris De Payne when I'm heading into town for fun allows a sketch to be either bright or gloomy whilst using the same colour.

(thanks again migo984)

Pen: Parker 45 F nib.

Paper: Cass Art 300gsm Watercolour

Entrance to 203 Eversholt Street, London

(I don't live there though)

Oh wow! This sketch is perfect! I went and looked it up too! I think I might also be interested in your sketches! Do you Instagram? Do you sell your prints?

That's very kind of you to say.

 

Inkantadora, I don't Instagram :blush: I don't really get it and leave that to my children. Perhaps I should look into it :mellow:

I've never sold a sketch, I mostly throw them away (I know) or give them away - a few "special" ones stay in a pile on top of some books for me to reflect over every now and then.

I was however fortunate enough to be commissioned by an FPN member (THANK YOU) to draw a selection of London scenes a couple of years ago and treated myself to one of my favourite pens, an Edison Husdon EF with the spoils - my sketching, like most things in my life, has improved a lot since then and I sometimes wonder how I would approach that commission were it given to me now . . .

Tas, you really should sell your sketches. They are amazing.

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

Thank you for sending over the CRVs and for all your work in scanning them so accurately. :notworthy1: :wub:

One can't help but agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment!

 

(I am also a huge fan of your faux DeFoe mix, with which a pen is always inked up!)

You caught the glitter so nicely in the picture! I now need this ink!

 

Oh Stormy Grey is something special. :wub: I bought a full bottle of it without trying a sample first, based solely on an written exemplar I saw at DCSS the summer it came out.

A little late to this party, but what the heck, I'll play...

 

I currently live in a city known for its conservatism and resistance to change. Only just lately, it has begun to join the 20th century. [Not a typo; the city and state pride themselves on their backwardness...]

 

So the ink I've chosen is KWZ Iron-Gall Gold, on parchment paper, with an old-fashioned italic dip nib. No new-fangled modern conveniences like fountain pens. That would be too progressive! ;)

Stunning ink and brilliant story.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
