Rona2, Anti-Depression Posies, Three


This little pen changed everything.
Vintage Pelikan P20 Twist Fountain Pen (while they are still available)
with its soluble black ink and a nib that slides on the paper (for about $10) is such a joy!
I use the empty cartridge (it cannot take a converter) and can refill them with a syringe.
I used to draw with a Platinum Carbon Pen or a Lamy with waterPROOF ink,
but on the toned paper I tried out my little parrot-colored joyful pen
and the way the ink interacted with the watercolors on top was so interesting…


For these I used the Platinum Carbon Pen for the first layer of doodling,
then went in and selectively placed some of the Pelikan black ink
where I thought it would be interesting to mix with
the bright purple-pink watercolor and fresh green leaves…
you can see it in the grey moving into purple above and below.


Messy-messy just like life right now
and chaotic… a total release!
