Experiments: Two More Inks {Part 5}


Today's experiment involves drawing with two inks using two Speedball nibs. I painted around the doodles with water to soften some of the edges. The sepia ink is J. Herbin Lie de Thé Ink and the light turquoise is J. Herbin Bleu Azur Ink. The Lie de Thé has a gorgeous, earthy rust undertone {I don't know the word used by ink afficionados}. Conclusion: Good fun. I am really digging ink and water. I prefer the Éclat de Saphir better than the Bleu Azur... only because it is darker. The inks are all intensely saturated and smooth as silk.

Let's review. Skip the following list if you already have a scorecard! experiment #1 + experiment #2 + experiment #3 + experiment #4.
