This page was worked in the Global Arts "Hand.book" journal. The pages have a slight toothy or vellum like feel to them compared to paper like hot press, bristol smooth or cartridge paper.
Using the Sailor Fude pen is really a lot of fun when working trees.....at least for me. Even when I don't get the angle of the nib down just right, even the slightest mark on paper fits with the texture of trunks and branches.
I think the more I play with this pen, the better control I'll eventually achieve. I just love the fact a single nib can produce all the variations seen here.
