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).

Create a Ghostly Avatar and I'll send you a letter. Check out some Ink comparisons: The Great PPS Comparison 

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

You should also check out the 366+ inks thread, I've been posting up your sketches.

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! ;)
