Feathers :: Plumes

Drawing in a Moleskine Sketchbook with a good quality fountain pen is heaven for me. As the sketchbook has a glaze finish on the pages, the ink flows smoothly without scratching. It reminds me of my young days as a graphic artist when I would set my X-Acto knife into the Rubylith or Amberlith to cut out the parts that were not masked… it was such a sensuous feeling. Today I practiced merging & radiating lines, using as an excuse “duck feathers”.

Dessiner dans un Moleskine Sketchbook est toujours un grand plaisir pour moi, surtout si j’utilise une plume fontaine comme le Sailor Desk Fountain Pen EF sur ce papier recouvert d’une glaise qui rend la glisse ultra sensuelle. Ça me fait penser au temps où j’étais une jeune graphiste avec un X-Acto en main découpant des parties de rubylith ou d’amberlith… quelle sensation. Aujourd’hui j’ai décidé de pratiquer des lignes en fusion et en rayonnement avec des plumes de canard.
