Snowy Creek

purchase here
Oh how I love painting snow!!  The strong values hook me every time - especially when the dark water of a creek is involved!  I'm using a smaller sketch bag that I've not been into for a while - and what did I find but my TWSBI Go fountain pen?  With very little coaxing that nib released a velvety line - after not touching it for many months!  That is one big reason I love their fountain pens - they always work!  I have many others that are dry whenever I return to them, requiring me to run them in water first, and sometimes that isn't enough.  Who has time for that?  Not this busy artist!  Even the very modest, inexpensive pen I used today worked right out of the gate.  I bought it on a whim to test out the spring ink loading system. It is probably the fastest loading pen I have!  Painting number 2545 in 2545 days.
