I USED A DIP PEN with a Telephone Pen nib. I’m lucky to have a whole box of these
as my dad brought them home from his office in the 1960s when they were clearing
out old stock. This C&A shirt is draped over the arm of an office chair of similar
vintage to the nibs.
I started the with the darkest tones in Payne’s grey watercolour, then added mid
tones and finally went over the whole thing with a varied mixture of raw umber, French
ultramarine and touches of permanent rose and Payne’s grey depending on whether the
grey seemed to be going towards warm or cool on particular folds of the shirt.
