Bellingham city sketched
with a Sailor Fude De Mannen Calligraphy Navy Blue Angle 40 Degrees pen with
Robert Oster Muddy Water ink. I can’t believe I like
the 55-degree fude better!
I had a hard time feeling the edges of this 40-degree pen.
I sketched with ink, no guidelines… it shows…
but mostly I had trouble getting the hang of
how to hold the pen so
the flat hit the paper.
Hard not to be critical when
I struggled so much!
Even when you have done things before, they may not come out to your liking…

Me… why I journal!
