I'm afraid the kind of drawings I like to do are too detailed to show properly on any computer screen but I did want to share with WC. pen folk a very different fountain pen that I got yesterday.
OK. I know it is a great big FAT 1.1mm wide line nib
but just like a flat calligraphy pen it has a sharp chisel edge which presented at the correct angle & using a very light pressure can leave a line that is genuinely as thin as a hair PLUS taking into account the angle of the "chisel blade" & the speed you make the line -the most characterful & controlled lines may be made.
Now I'm not saying it is quite
as versatile as a dip pen but it nearly is!
More than that though it offers fast
dip free drawing & lends itself PERFECTLY to a quick & loose drawing feeling whilst still being capable of great accuracy - I've only done a few practice lines then jumped into this experiment today !
If you already can tease a range of varied lines out of any fountain pen this pen might ? be of interest to you. I've never handled anything like it.
Obviously I fully understand that choice of pen is a entirely personal & subjective matter ,the way it has to be used to perform OK. for drawing is very different from any other pen except a hand cut reed pen perhaps.
This is on an A4 by the way.
Strange thing is I bought this pen to Make bolder drawings but habitually fell into my fine line obsession !
I'm going to have to discipline myself & try some bolder stuff with it next !
PS. Iv'e just added a detail to get better Idea.
