Taking Classes

I enjoy taking classes —
the camaraderie, and also, even if I know a lot about the subject, I always learn something.

This was a class by Pat Southern Pearce, called Paperbag Blossoms.  Pat often sketches on toned paper; that was the point of this class.

I was sick with a flu bug; this did the trick to make me happy.   I tested out my new Kakimori nib, which I will review later.

The paper I used was the inside of a Trader Joe bag.

This was my first go with the Brass Kakimori nib; I enjoyed it.
Dip the nib in the ink bottle and draw as if you were using a dip pen (you are!)
Takes a bit of getting used to if you want a skinny line —
and I understand the Stainless Steel nib has a thinner line.

Steps above; all the colors are inks.

  1. Cool! I never thought about using a grocery bag as toned paper. It’s a good idea. Your flowers are lovely.
