I got some new fountain pens for Christmas — they’re WONDERFULLY handy! Like many artists, I like to sketch with nibs because the line quality is more versatile than with technical pens. With these new pens, I can sketch anywhere without worrying about spilling jars of ink, because they have their own refillable ink cartridges. (Yes I know, what a technological advancement!) Wahoo! I plan on doing lots of travel sketching with them, among other things.
The sketch below was done to test the range of thickness and line quality I can get with said pens. It’s based on a photo my husband took of one of our cats, Miko, sleeping soundly in her carpeted cat “hut”. Nothing fancy, but I’d figure I’d post it just to stay in touch.
