I have a bottle f J. Herbin 1670, a dark red that’s not waterproof. I’m not exactly sure what to do with it but I decided that I should experiment with using it for sketching. I loaded up my Wahl-Eversharp Symphony with the ink and while watching baseball I doodled a bit, creating this page in a Strathmore ‘toned gray’ sketchbook. Wish the paper was better but for pen-only work it’s not bad.
While riding the ferry to another event I did this small sketch of one of those tie-off thingies (sorry for my use of technical terms). For some things I can see this color being fun to play with but I won’t be giving up my bottle of Lexington Gray anytime soon.
