Today I tried experimenting with sketches with only brush and ink. The brush used was a standard #6 watercolour brush and the ink was blue Mont Blanc fountain pen ink. The idea was to sketch without my regular crutch of resorting to watercolour. The sketches were done in under ten minutes each. Today I broke in a new sketch pad - Moleskine 8.25" x 5" Watercolour book. I normally favour the larger Moleskine 11.25" x 8" Watercolour books. I will continue in parallel with the larger Moleskine for my regular sketches while using the smaller for experimentation.
