Wednesday found me adding a few more sketches to my Seawhite, square journal using nothing but Noodler's ink, my Lamy Safari fountain pen and a water brush here and there. My first image was loosely based on a magazine reference.
Tim and Dawn live in the village and supply flowers to the local supermarkets and florists from their home. After hearing I have artistic tendencies, they passed on an invitation for me to select flowers at a discount rate so I popped along and chose a stem of lilies and chrysanthemums.
Dawn kindly refused payment of any kind with the promise she we allow me to pay for my choices next time.
I am enjoying the Seawhite square pages, they remind me a lot of W&N Heavyweight pages to work with, although slightly thinner they seem to handle plenty of action with my Lamy nib and they are sized, so take watercolour washes well . You do not get the same reactions as a good rag paper though.
What I'd give for a sketchbook that did it all!
