Perth Royal Show this year….sketched to highland cow on location and added watercolour after, the turkey is sketched from a photo.
Leighton Beech on a sunny Saturday afternoon, lots of people and dogs enjoying the sea (this is one of the most popular dog beaches in Perth). Big piles of rotting seaweed thrown up in the winter storms along the sand.
More playing around with the Fude nib… beginning to get the hang of it…have to hold the pen at different angles to lay down the variety of line widths, larger arm movement than small hand movements….a unique way of drawing but in a good way…..A view out across the roof tops looking towards Kings Park, Perth.
Playing around with a new nib….a “fude” (deliberately bent) nib for my TWSBI Eco fountain pen – now I can get line variation with the huge ink capacity of the TWSBI design (this pen doesn’t take ink cartridges – the ink is contained in the body of the pen – insert the nib into a bottle of ink and twist the other end to operate the plunger to suck in the ink).
