Penn Valley Lake Inked

I have tried 14 different shades of brown ink, looking for the perfect color, to no avail.  On a crazy whim, I decided to half load Levenger Cocoa and add Levenger Raven Black to my newest TWSBI Eco T fountain pen (in yellow green!).  Guess what?  I LOVE the color!  It is exactly the rich dark black brown I've been searching for!  That vintage quality it adds to this drawing is timeless!  I found a perfect solution!  The way it spreads with water is also perfect.  It's a great day, my friends!  Painting number 1935 in 1935 days.
