Ancient Hills...Sketching in ink
Sometimes it is fun to use Ink in your sketch book. It is almost difficult to go wrong with pen and ink. Experimenting with mark making will help in all areas of your drawing and is hugely enjoyable. It can be very freeing to know that once a mark is made it is permanent...so why worry? For sketching I usually use Black Kandahar Drawing ink. I have a selection of nibs but one of the most useful is a Post Office nib which has a medium/broad nib. I also like to have one narrow nib for finer detail. It is possible to make mant different marks with each nib.
