Pin oak

Today I am playing with pen and ink on wet handmade cotton rag paper.  By brushing the paper wet with a brushpen, I allow the glisten to dry off before putting pen to paper.  There is still quite a bit of spread - which lends itself well to the branches of the tree.  I am using a favorite TWSBI fountain pen loaded with Colorverse Black Hole.  This ink is very dark, almost black.  The violet tones really come out with the addition of water in a brushpen.  Painting number 2601 in 2601 days.

  1. The violet tones give your landscapes an eerie kind of component, I love them!
