    Test writing an old Sailor pen (probably 1960's or 70's vintage).



    Which also has the thinnest EF nib I've ever used.

    The October theme is "Harvest." I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

    I've recently come across this thread & I see there is no new theme for December. Thought I'd post a random sketch with the hopes of joining you lovely folks for the Jan theme...

    Thanks Sadiq! Nice sketch, and that suggests a number of options. Decorative things?

    Thank you Marsilius. My sketches have a long way to come, but I’m hoping to get as good as all you regular contributors to this thread.

    Hopefully we still get a few more “December...D...Decorative” sketches before New Years.

    Hopefully the way people arrange their gardens also falls under ‘decorative’

    My next sketch is a landscaped garden. I used a A5 notebook again, so things got a little mono toned...I tried a water brush to get some other shades. Think it’s time I get an A4 sketchpad...

    Good use of the washes. It's simple but adds to the sketch.
