Inktober.

Recently I have been getting more into fountain pens and inks.  So I was excited to try and participate in this year’s Inktober challenge.

Originally I thought I would just practice my penmanship and use a different ink color every day of the month. But then I read the actual initiative and realized I was supposed to DRAW in ink each day. My drawing skills … well…. erm… leave a bit to be desired.  But in for a penny, in for a pound. Away we go.

The first week looks like this:

I realized yesterday that the point of #inktober is to draw. So I drew. #ivy

So far my favorite is either the Ajisai (Hydrangea) or the Vert Olive (Olive Green).
