Lamy, Noodler's and Canson

Imagination sketch in Canson Watercolour Sketchbook

I have started a new journal, the Canson watercolour sketchbook 21cm x 15cm purchased for £11.10 at Greatart. It has a delicious, bright red cover and is filled with 230g watercolour paper, slightly heavier than the Roberson sketchbook I have just finished.

My sketch was created from imagination, drawing inspiration from a design on some packaging, using my NEW yummy blue Lamy Safari fountain pen and my NEW Aircorp blue/black Noodler's ink. Like my Noodler's red/black ink, the Aircorp is NOT waterproof, allowing one to manipulate it with a wet brush for some quick and easy values. The nib on this pen is silver unlike the black nibs on my other two Safari's and I've noticed it's a little scratchy at the moment, I am hoping it will wear in with use ...I am sure it will.

You've made out like a bandit with your total Christmas haul of art-oriented gifts! Your family is doing a great job of spoiling you! Love your imaginative drawing.

Love the imagination sketches and your use of color to brighten them. I always love seeing artist materials - looks like you got some good things from Santa :)

Lovely drawing and I had new pens for christmas too - can't wait to try them. I get so excited with new art 'toys'!

I have a sketchbook that looks exactly the same. But mine says Vang on the back cover, sort of pressed into the book cloth. I wonder if the paper in it is the same, Canson, as in yours? I love it, anyway, it´s great for both drawing and watercolours. I love your drawing!
