Now, this is more the effect that I was
after: the Sakuyo Japanese paintbrush gives a
more varied line than the bamboo pen that I was trying yesterday.
There's such a variety in that line; more so than in drawings
made with my fountain pens or with my Pentel brush pen. The bristles
are sheep (sometimes described as white goat) and sable (sometimes
described as weasel).
It will be perfect for my Peak District book. As
the Chinese ink I'm using comes in an elegant ceramic bottle I
shall have to find something more stable and secure if I'm going
to use it on location
