Finally, I’m learning how some inks work. For instance, I like using Parker fountain pen ink for washes, but it doesn’t agree with paper that has been mistreated (I recycled some of my course drawings into new sketchbooks. Wiping off the graphite or charcoal from some of them took some effort and affected the smoothness of the paper).
I have used also a Pentel brush pen. The ink is quite dense and fast drying and seems impervious to imperfect paper. I have also learned to make washes with it (I simply touch the tip with a water brush and some of the ink it picks can then be applied like a wash). That’s what I did on the first two drawings that follow:
Some of these images have appeared in previous posts but seem relevant here too.
Thanks for reading this and checking my drawings.
