Beautiful presentation, handwriting and quote :)

I love that you've written the text in green and not in pink as one would be tempted....

I have been tempted by Umber for sometime and haven't yet succumbed yet :lol:

Great comparison. I love the contrast. So, did you and Kelli at mountainofinks plan out to do Diamine Green Umber on the same day? I don't believe in coincidences.

Hmmm. I'm maybe going to have to take a closer look at Umber.

Dagnabbit! Why, oh why, am I now hearkening back to my freshman Color and Design 1 class (lots of Josef Albers color theory) and the "ugly color" problem.... :wallbash:

I like the combination.

 

 

But excuse my non-native speaker question. What is umber? Couldn't find the connection to the ink. :unsure:

Umber is one of my favorite green inks. The others being Vert empire, MB Kipling, and the the much underrated Pelikan Olivine.

 

I don't use pink, but i love the contrast and the writing.

I never did understand why D. called it "Umber". Umber can have several meanings but basically (no pun), it characterizes an earth pigment which contains iron and manganese oxides. So far so good. But D's ink looks more like a fern to me and that's why I use it often. In any case thanks for this nice comparison. I'm not really into pinks but D's Umber is all the more reason to get L's V. Pink.

Thank you, fellow ink characters. It is indeed weird that Kelli at mountainofinks and I chose to highlight an obscure ink on the same day. She has been doing her usual wonderful, comprehensive job on green inks recently. Some more Diamine umber:

Have been a fan of Diamine Umber for years. Never considered Lamy's Vibrant Pink until now.

 

Thank you for broadening my horizon.

Fool me once, shame on you.

Fool me twice; damn

There goes that fox again.
