    Currently, to revive this discussion, I start most of the times directly in ink. I use a fountain pen with a fine nib most of the times with Platinum pigment ink. The Platinum carbon black is absolutely waterproof. Only once a few of the pigments came off the page while coloring, I still wonder why – maybe a strange coated area on the paper.

    Anyway, I then color it in with my watercolors and as I also add fake black for the darker values – green with indigo, brown mixed with phtalo blue, I use these darks also to refine the outlines. Also I usually add value to the initial ink sketch with diluted indian ink I carry in a waterbrush.

    I‘ve been using black Sailor nanoink in my Lamy al stars with extra fine nibs since summer without problems.

    Nice about the Lamys is, I’m not really emotionally attached to them and I can take them apart completely for cleaning – after every fifth filling or so.

    Currently I’m also trying rose red pigment ink from platinum but it seems to bleed a bit into the paper.

    The finished sketch. Last step was adding outlines with black ink and white gel pen.

    I‘m far from being an expert, but that technique is the one which works faily well atm.

    I sketched this yesterday on location. Now I’m defining the basic shapes at home with a large flat brush.

    Also what reallworks nicely for me is using a larger brush than you would normally use, especially a flat brush. I also own a strange blade like brush which I like very much.

    I like it.

    When I‘m rushed, it looks like that. However, I found out, for me it works better to loosely sketch with pencil, do the coloring, defining the shapes and then add the contours.

    Also I found it beneficial at this time of the year to do the pencil sketch outside if possible and the coloring and outlines at home where it‘s warm. 🙂
