I’ve fallen in love with TWSBI’s and draw them a lot.
They are architectural, like little buildings,
and you can see all the ways they work which is very cool.
I drew these in my last Nostaglie Sketchbook but resisted adding paint.
I wanted to, then loved the clean line (I’ve been doing more drawing lately)
and so let it go. Close that book and put it on my shelf.
Then Tonya from @scratchjournal wrote about a piece that nagged at her and
I realized this was STILL nagging at me even after I closed the book.
Turn out MGraham’s Cobalt Turquoise matches my turquoise pen…
the only watercolor… I wanted something that conveyed
a loss of light through the pens for the turquoise TWSBI as it is solid plastic.
the others are demonstrators and jeweled translucent colors.
Now the book is safely tucked away and I breathe easier!

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
