Inktober, 13 Black Bean Tostadas

I attempted to grind my own architect’s nib from a Lamy Broad nib.
Not too bad, for my first Lamy nib (I’ve practiced on the cheap ones.)
It needs to be a little sharper, and not quite as scratchy… but I will work on that.

Super5 Darmstadt ink (an off-black with a tinge of smoggy brown) in my metal Lamy Joy.
Some inking with the Platinum Carbon pen for one of our favorite meatless dinner nights.
Color is some old liquid watercolor in a waterbrush pen, not sure what!

    Good for you, you intrepid artist, you! It’s very impressive that you got that close to “just right” on your first try (even if you did practice a bit).

    Nice! I simply must get a better pen. Unless I do the whole transfer with carbon to watercolor paper, the ink runs when I put the watercolor paint to the lines.


  3. I love all the people who are “doing” inktober, even “nonartists.” It’s awesome!


I love hearing from visitors!
