The Brisbane Urban Sketchers met at Roma Street parklands for our Tuesday Sketchout.
I ordered a Noodlers Konrad Brush pen some time ago, and it arrived yesterday afternoon. I was excited to try it out today, and it surpassed my expectations, as did the Noodlers Forest green ink I had bought awhile ago and not yet tried. The brush pen I bought, has a clear barrel, so I can see how much ink is in it..
This was my test sketch, to see what strokes I could get, using my Hocroft 225gsm sketchbook
I sketched a cormorant drying his wings, an Ibis standing sleepily in the warm morning sun, and a Willy Wagtail sitting on a wire fence. We were sketching in the Lake Precinct.
This time I used a waterbrush on the ink to see what effects I could get. The ink is not waterproof, and lends itself to some really exciting sketching with a waterbrush. Same sketchbook as above.
This sketch is in same sketchbook as well, and I used a 0.5 Uni Pin pen, and watercolour.
While I was sketching here, there were a lot of inquisitive water dragons watching me.
