Sketchers are fond of drawing their paint brushes. They do them large; they do them small. They do them in full color and they do them with simple lines. I was sitting on our deck sipping coffee and my eye caught this brush, the common one in use around our place right now. Here is my brush drawing for the year.
This was drawn quickly, between coffee gulps, in a Hahnemuehle Cappuccino notebook. I bought it a long time ago but when it arrived I didn’t see much use for it since the paper is only 120gsm so you can’t put a lot of water to it. But it’s really smooth paper and a dream to draw on with fountain pen, particularly since I’m used to drawing on rougher watercolor paper. It will handle a bit of water as long as you don’t ask much of it and the beautiful hardbound cover and thin format are nice too. I’ll carry it around for a while and see what happens. Here’s an example of how it handles light watercolor washes.
