    I have become active on The Fountain Pen Network over the past 8 months or so. One of the threads I participate in is a weekly sketch challenge where a theme is posted. These are (for me., at least) generally very quick sketches - five to ten minutes. Here is one mine from week #3 - "A condiment." Of course, I had some help. ;)

    Very nice work. Love the confident loose line, and color wash. You can tell you really love the feel of that pen and enjoy working it.

    Thank you. I actually used a couple of fountain pens, a Speedball dip pen and a watercolor brush. Sometimes I'll block in with pencil first, other times I'll just lay down the ink.

    Reminds me a great deal of a James Thurber sketch. That's a compliment btw. ;)

    Stepping back, a bit. This was one of the "step-by-step" shots I made for the "Favorite Pen" sketch. I chose my new (at the time) Sheaffer 300 "Ferarri" pen and a bottle of Iroshizuku "Momiji" ("Autumn Leaves") ink.

    At this point, I had inked in the sketch and was erasing the pencil lines. The are here - pencil. pens, erasers, and three of the inks. My helper has left, but you can see a part of her in the sketch, right above the pen.
