Drawing with Dip Pen and Ink. Materials

While with watercolor I came to the conclusion that I am not interested in photorealistic rendering and I’m happy with more loose, suggestive recordings, for which any paper, brush or watercolour will do, with ink I’m still searching for the best ink, nib and paper. By “best” I mean the perfect equilibrium between the quality of the stroke and it’s power of expressiveness, the pleasure to draw, because without that the entry into the state of flow would not be possible and the return to the drawing board would become in time an anguish and, in the end, to a certain degree, the archival quality of the result.

In this week exclusive post from Patreon, you will learn everything about the qualities and weaknesses of the papers I use in my ink illustrations and about my favourite nibs and inks.
