I RAN OUT of blue black ink half way through the drawing my art bag so I popped a
blue cartridge in my Parker Reflex fountain pen. Even though I flushed out the nib
unit, it’s not flowing as well as I’d like. This could be because the cartridge paper
I’m using has slightly rough surface or possibly because it is sized. The pen is
designed for writing so perhaps, if I want a smoothly flowing line, I should try
it on writing paper.
The evening clouds are something that Ruskin suggested students of drawing should
try to represent using line to represent gradations of tone.
