Loving sunflowers and knowing how lovely the Esterbrook pens are,
I had to purchase the beautiful Esterbrook “Estie” Sunflower pen from Penchalet.
I ordered the 1.1 stub nib, my favorite nib for sketching and writing.
I am convinced the stub nib saves my handwriting from being the worst ever!
Keeping inks from running amok when painting with them is not easy…
in this case I started with a very watery layer, then added
quick darker layers to look a bit like a smokey background.
Keeping it from running into the gold inked pen was tricky.
Below, my other Estie pen, a gift from Mitchell,
the Esterbrook “Estie” Blueberry, also a stub nib.
