Artist Sketching Pen
A new pen can shake up your drawing a bit so I decided that - with
a name like that - I'd try both a brown and a black in this alcohol-based
permanent ink Artist Sketching Pen (see 23rd
May) when I saw them in the Picturecraft art shop
There is the problem that the ink goes right through the page in
my small orange sketchbook, leaving a ghost, reversed image on the
other side but I can see a line quality that isn't quite
like any other pen I use.
Or is it the effect of those alcohol fumes that's making me more
relaxed, more sketchy, as I go on?
Ah! - the familiar Microsoft XP fanfare: it's finished installing
Despite all this extra work on the computers at least we managed
to get out briefly this afternoon and bought tomatoes, peppers and
hanging basket flowers which we potted up in peat-free compost.
