Colours used: Dragons Night, Velvet Crush, Australian Opal Blue, Bishop to King, Yellow Sunset, Eucalyptus Leaf, African Gold, Blood Crimson, Australian Opal Mauve and a sprinkle of Schmincke gold dust!
And here are seven swatch cards of new additions to his range – most of which are used in the map of Australia:

HEY! If you’re interested to know more about how to use fountain pen inks in more creative ways – whether it’s simply to observe their chromatic behaviours, or, to recreate one of my swatch cards, or, to learn how to use them in watercolour painting, illustration and calligraphy, why not check out my online course or, even better, sign up for a workshop?
