Crescent Moon


Fast ink sketch of Rosh Chodesh, the first night we saw the crescent moon.
All those colors came out of Robert Oster Thunderstorm ink!
I am still finding the ink to have a life of it’s own…
so the idea is to use it when you can let go and allow it to do its thing!

I used the Duke Fude
(Bent) Nib
(right)
for the sketch and the writing at the edge, and my Lamy Vista
with the 1.1 stub for the
other writing.  The fude nib
is juicy and lays down
a ton of ink with its
broad bent nib.  Also, this
is the nib laid on the
back of the Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook page with that thick ink and
water-washed ink on
the other side…
The page held up with
no bleed through!
