    Yes. Kiwa-guro is a nano-particle carbon (pigment) ink so is waterproof when dry. It dries fast. Even so I kept the washes quick & light.

    This week, An Old Tractor.

    Something about these old workhorses are so appealing.

    Beautiful sketches. I especially admire the tonal values of the second one.

    Hey Michael,
    I use my Esterbrook for sketching also. Their Fine nibs are very nice to sketch/draw with.

    I love old cities, and since I read one of the "Inspector Yashim" novels by Jason Goodwin, I am fascinated by Constantinople or today's Istanbul.

    This week's sketch is inspired by the view from the Bosphorus strait towards the ancient city.
    The pen is one of my newest one, a copper Estie J, love that color!
    The ink, what else is more appropriate... Diamine Ancient Copper.

    One week lapse, got to keep up with the practice... a new pen helps with the motivation.

    This week, we go to Scotland to see one of the beautiful castles:

    Here's something I stumbled on when preparing to do a new sketch.





    I wanted to replace the ink in my manga pen with the closest match. It had some of the original black manga ink, but I diluted it with Noodler's Navaho Turquoise. It was the most difficult ink to clean out of a pen ever, but I think in the end I went ahead and mixed Navaho Turquoise with some sorta black. Maybe Perle Noire.

    I believe bung box has slowed the production of the ink. If you're in the states, contact www.vanness1938.com to see when a shipment will be coming. I'm thinking I read somewhere, spring of 2016.

    Ok, first quick scrappy scribbly sketch of the year, but proof that I am finally starting to draw again. Strathmore smooth bristol paper, Sailor Jentle Doyou in a Conid Bulkfiller with Ahab nib, a touch of Quink in a MB146. An experiment in smudging ink, and the beginnings of an idea of mangy bird wings that look like winter branches with no leaves. One of my default subjects is slightly grumpy trees, probably thinking, "You killed a tree for THIS?". Anyway, its a start!

    I actually like it.
    How do you do the smudging? Cotton balls?

    Thanks! Just paper towels. Sometimes a messy hand. Cottons balls might be a good idea.
    I've had good luck with saturated colored inks like PR chocolate. Inks that take a while to dry are nice enough to wait for you to put down the pen and pick up the cloth before they dry. And the more satuarted ones tend to spread more like a color than a smear. Fun to play with that.

    Here's a hasty hand:



    Needle-fine Tachikawa Manga Pen, 'vintage,' fi' dolla...a mix of Noodler's 'GI Navajo' and JH Perle Noir, came out a nice deep teal.
