As some of you may be be aware, I have just finished testing 24 Krishna fountain pen inks and I’ll be posting the swatches over the weekend – I promise.
So, just to get you excited, here is one of them – simply called Pencil. This ink colour is a dark reddy brown but when blended with water… WOW! I know, it’s fantastic.
The nearest equivalent is Noodler’s Rome Burning, which is a big favourite of mine, but Pencil is just that much more subtle breaking down into crimsons, browns and that gorgeous soft silvery green. The illustration of the sheep grazing was a dream to do. Really simple, but so effective and the bleach effect is perfect for sheep wool. What’s not to like?
If you’d like to buy any of the original art featured on my site you can purchase it on my ETSY shop site or contact me direct. I will do my upmost to add value to your investment over time – click here to access the shop . I am also accepting commissions for swatch tests. So, if you have a favourite ink(s) and some words for someone special, or maybe just for yourself, drop me a line and we can discuss further.
If you’d like to know more about this project, please take a look at the Mission Statement.
All tests on Bockingford 200lb watercolour paper using brushes and a Noodler’s Ahab for the ink work.
Ink samples very kindly donated by Krishna Inks
Just for the record – I do this for myself, I receive no remuneration what-so-ever and I tell it exactly how I see it.
