I’ve just been experimenting with a Windsor & Newton Series 7 #2 brush and Speedball Super Black India Ink and testing its water-resistance. So far I’m pretty pleased. I was enjoying inking with the Sumi-filled Aquash, but the sumi ink is just so sensitive to water, that I couldn’t go back into the drawing with watercolor. The Speedball ink seems to flow nicely and adds the advantage of being “waterproof.” This was done on a smooth-surface bristol.
Also, a special shoutout to my brother. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, V!!!
