    Default Red-Brown Quartet

    Late last night, while waiting for something else to finish, I scribbled this on Kokuyo Campus paper. Took about five minutes.



    Montblanc is the lightest and reddest of the four. Monteverde and Krishna show too similar in the scan, but are subtly different in Real Life. The Krishna ink will show a green sheen if laid down thick enough. Maybe one or two others do so as well.

    I should have stuck with the glass pen for the Montblanc. The old Arnold didn't cut it as a dipper.
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!


    And my latest ebook, for spooky wintery reading:

    Thanks, Yazeh! My mix is actually the dregs of every reddish or brownish ink sample I ever had, so I can't even remember which or what. 😹

    In go back and forth on these types of colours. Sometimes I like them, other times, for no apparent reason, they kind of annoy me. Not sure why.

    Thank you for the comparison

    I saw the title and thought maybe you were posting about a jazz group from the 1960s!

    Red Chalk is another of Montblanc’s home-runs that should have become a standard color.
