Today's sketch I wanted to do something that indicated what I used for this challenge to include the one pen I used most for sketching.
I'm not crazy about working hands..........not in pen and ink anyways. Graphite I don't mind. So with this one I had to just jump in because had I sat and thought about it, I might not have bothered.
It's a rough sketch putting down lines even if in the wrong place and then just making corrections along the way.
The pen I used for this one is the Hero 578 Bent Nib Pen. It's loaded with Lexington Gray ink which between a nib that feeds wet and the paper was a little slow drying. I had to be careful not to rest my hand on the paper surface smearing the ink. And the journal is so small that without a resting place for my hand on the page, my lines were definitely rough..........look at those fingernails!!!! In bad need of a manicure, don't you think????.....hahaha.
