Art Materials sketch using dip pen


It’s been ages since I used my dip pen – I love the feel of it and the result. Those wavy lines are bold yet soft. I also love the look of the varying thickness of the lines. It’s such a fun tool, but a challenging one for outdoor use. The pen picks up a lot of ink and a longer drying time (than the normal pen) is required even when using waterproof ink. Patience is definitely required, before applying watercolour.
