Was sooo happy to get my new Lamy Al-Star Fountain Pen in a rich CopperOrange. Although I ordered the cartridge converter with it, they sent a free blue ink cartridge, so I thought I’d try it out!
Now, all my black and grey inks are purchased with a waterproof factor in mind. Never gave that a thought as I sat and sketched my cute wave pansies. The pen worked so smoothly and I felt like I now had a “Porsche” to replace my existing tribe of pens. (Well, not replace, so much as enhancing my collection!) Of course, the pansies are rich shades of pink, so I started to add some quinacridone red, and, well, here’s the result.
Lesson learned, I will get that cartridge converter into action before trying a sketch that needs some color added!
PS – By the way, the blue ink would be great to use with just water in a monochrome theme!
