This weekend I have been playing with inks, but for a change I have used water soluble, rather than the carbon water resistant ink, let’s just say, I got very inky fingers. It was a lot of fun, but quite hard to control, I did add a little watercolour, and I needed to add some white, as I had unfortunately lost some of the tonal values, a little unfortunate that I needed to do that but heyho, we learn with each new medium. I used my lamy Safari pen and quink ink, on the ‘9 carat kisses’ I added some pastel on top of the ink.
The horse was done with a different ink ( one encased in a pen) the elegant writer, brown, I would love if speedball made pots of this lush ink in brown and black, but sadly they don’t( they do make a black ink but it is not the same as in the pens)so the only way to achieve this is by purchasing the pen itself. I do love the back elegant writer best, but the brown is not far behind.
