    Default Started a new sketching blog

    https://sketchingonthetrain.wordpress.com

    Started it last week, what do you think?

    I sketch every day with my twsbi vac700 ef and a variety of black inks, I need to start geeking out and labeling the posts better with the type if pens used.

    Very good start, Suzy.
    There is progress to be made, but you have already a style of your own (and that is not an easy thing).
    Congratulations, and keep on.
    Yes, labeling the drawings would be nice.

    Some really nice work there I especially like some of the black ones. Thats impressive to sketch on the train. I've tried it, but found it hard, maybe our trains here are more shaky? lol

    I'll get my site up some day too.

    I've stopped auto posting my Instagram now (after feedback) so the posts are better written with info on what pen & inks Ive used. I think it's looking a lot better now.

    I particularly liked the chiaroscuro drawings. Very strong.

    I've just looked through some of them and they are really good. What sketchbook did you use for your Inktober 2018 sketches? The paper looks very nice for ink drawings.

    Thank you. For inktober I used Seawhite of Brighton A5 ringbound Sketchbook it 150gsm and really nice to draw on with ink. I much prefer the square casebound ones they do though, it's the same paper but without the annoying ringbinding most of the white papered movember portraits are on that paper too.

    Thanks. I looked on Amazon and found an A5 black hard bound version but it's 140gsm not 150gsm. It might work.

    Oh you're right, the casebound version is 140,its lovely to draw on though. I thought it was the same paper inside.

    I actually prefer the 140gsm after drawing on 150 for ages. I was surprised how big of a difference I felt as well.

    Good stuff. I used to sketch on the train and cultivated a wavy squiggly line effect for those drawings. You manage just great without.
