My Pen & Ink Turban Shell

It has been a week since Hubby and I came back from our mini vacation trip to the beach. I did a quick sketch this evening of a sea shell Hubby and I picked up on our trip. It was a black and beige Turban shell that I recreated using blue and gray ink colors.

I’m using a small pocket journal to practice and create my pen and ink sketches. So far it’s been working nicely and I’m able to focus and sketch a single object. I can now stare at a small blank 4″x6″ page versus a larger piece of paper from my A5 journal. Hahaha!

I will be back with another post to include a few beach pictures from our trip.

Pens: TWSBI GOs with Stub 1.1 nibs.

Inks: Van Dieman’s Ink Morning Frost. Diamine Ash and Storm (Inkvent). Robert Oster Thunderstorm.
