Well it's Summer here and yesterday was 35C so I am wanting to cool down. When I prepared this sample it was between 2 heatwaves. Today (Thursday) we are having another brief respite from the heat. I hate Summer. :bawl:

Thanks for your idea Lgosltek.

 

While I found the weekly ink posts great and they encouraged me to explore more inks, I think the weekly theme can be challenging. I like the idea of ink pairing themes and think weekly pairings will be difficult, so monthly is a good idea.

 

Thank you for your feedback! And that's a nice sheeny ink!

I have to write it down or I forget. :D

Nice! If you're gonna use an orange, it should indeed be very bright and cheerful. :) (Of course, if I spend too much time thinking about it, I'll remember that I like the online store swatches of Monteverde (I think, Monte-someone anyway) Copper Noir, which looks sort of dark orangey, so I guess I like the other end of the spectrum too. <sigh> I'm hopeless. :rolleyes: )

Swab #0 on the right hand edge is Diamine Ancient Copper, and I also find it a little more 'brick' :)

 

 

 

I find Ancient Copper browner, more "brick".

 

:headsmack: I can't believe I didn't spot those swabs! D'oh!

This is supposed to be red. In person it is much more of a coral / orange color.

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

Here's mine; I went with killing both seasons with one post.

Also a way to say that I'm looking forward to next year's ink pairing themes.

Gorgeous! What does the wax do?

 

Thank you.

 

I wasn't in the "zone" to draw every scale so I gently rubbed a bit of wax from a tea light onto the paper which allowed just a little of the ink wash to sink into the paper hopefully giving the impression of scales.

Thank you. It really is my favourite orange . . . not that I have many. Only an Ahab has about a 1/4 fill of Habanero and there's 3/4 bottle of Terracotta are the only ones left in the drawer now.

Jaw-dropping, gorgeous art. I had to stare at it for a full minute before I could scroll down.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
