Inks are in the order of the number of BOTTLES I end up buying,
not the number of samples I tried.
Sometimes I bought many orange inks, or green inks, or grey inks,
only to end up buying Robert Oster after all…
I definitely have a preference for his inks.
Occasionally you will see two images for the same color.
This is because it is a color that changes by lighting so very much!

NOTE: The journals I am using to swab are
NOT the very fine Hahnemühle journals!
Be very clear, as I am such a fan of
Hahnemuhle Journals and paper —
but I am not using them for swabbing,
NOT my best journals!
I have several fairly awful
Fabriano watercolor journals that
pill, fall apart, and are unsuitable for watercolors,
and I decided to use these for my watercolor
and ink swatch books.
Unfortunately, they have even bled through
in my ink swatches a couple of times.
