Lakeside Sailing Inked

The sailboats moved in and out of the harbor, families playing in the water together, and I had to paint them.  Standing in a sliver of shade, I grabbed my favorite pen only to find it out of ink! Oh no!  After trying to coax the last little bit of ink out of my fountain pen, I gave up. I tried several pens before landing on this Le Pen, which I don't care for normally, but it does move with water, and that is what I needed.  Today's lesson?  Keep that extra fountain pen in the easel bag.....where it was before I removed it!  Painting number 1650 in 1650 days.
