I tried another quicky sketch…
Not thinking about inktober but that works too!
It isn’t the bad proportions that I hate
about this sketch (I mean, I might
have done better), it is that I can’t seem
to get the hang of the fude.
I love the Duke Fude compared to the Hero…
it is simply juicier. While I can get the Hero to work now, it still isn’t as juicy as the Duke and needs frequent priming.
Right, me simply playing with lines.
The top two are the fudes, and the bottom
is one of my FPR flex nibs.
In my hands, the flex nib wins for
the ability to change line weights.
But I’ve not given up YET.
I am working in the Hahnemühle Cappuccino Sketchbook for the rest of the week…
Testing for Hahnemühle means I am likely to finish the challenge.
I am not commenting about the paper until Sunday…

“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
