Storm Nutcracker

 It is so fun to open a new door on my Inkvent Calendar!  This Diamine ink is Storm, and is a wonderful deep blue that bleeds out to a turquoise with water.  I chose my new blue glass dip pen for this drawing and the nib is a little scratchy on this handmade paper.  I think I'll lightly sand it before the next time I use it, see if it helps the flow a little. I think this ink would be lovely in a winter landscape, perhaps when the snow is falling!  Tomorrow, our baby graduates college, and we'll be moving him home!  I can't wait to have him home again as he starts his new career at Burns and McDonnell.  He's going to be a brilliant electrical engineer.  Painting number 3255 in 3255 days.
