Inkvent Day #21: Diamine Brandy Snap
Brandy Snap is a good name for this standard ink.
This ink has a bit of shading and a tiny, tiny bit of sheen.
This ink reminds me of a color somewhere between Burnt Sienna and raw Sienna from my watercolor paints.
For a standard ink, it responds well with water and creates a lovely ink wash.
When I first saw this color on my swatch card, it reminded me of Robert Oster Antelope Canyon. Antelope Canyon leans more towards orange. I checked a few more swatches and realized my other ink colors leaned towards orange or brown. Brandy Snap sits somewhere in the middle.
(Note: I will be back to add a swatch comparison picture)
This is a lovely and bright brandy or Sienna color. The yellow underlying color reminds me of Diamine Candle Light from this same Inkvent calendar. This is on my wish list for it’s unique color and for use in my artwork.
