Everyday Sketches

I’m continuing on with my daily sketching in my Moleskine sketchbook. I had started out using a Lamy Safari pen filled with Noodler’s black ink. The lines were not as fine even though the nib was a EF (extra fine). So I switched over to a Pilot penmanship (from Japan) and the nib is very fine. Love it!

Then I came across a children’s book, The Gift of the Magi illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger. Her drawings look so delicate of watercolor and light brown ink, possibly sepia. The lines are not that bold. So fortunately I had Walnut Ink by Tom Norton.  I filled the ink in the Lamy Safari and the lines are perfect – not too thick. And also it appears that the ink does not dissolve with the watercolors.

    1. Thanks, mylittleworld.ca. After using the sepia ink with a few more sketches I have to say I found the right media for me…at least for now.
