Doodles 04

With the idea of practicing bird shapes, I was bored after the second one. At least it's easier for me to do half-way decent line drawings of birds than it was a year ago.

Two different inks were used in the same model of fountain pens and points. The interior was done using Noodler's Black, and it was fine, though I always let it dry several hours between sessions and before adding the colored pencil. I'm sure it's dry sooner, but my attention span takes me elsewhere. The frame was done using Platinum Carbon Black, and the line is thicker, plus it feathered and blobbed where I hesitated or stopped.

My preferences:
Moleskine Sketchbook: Noodler's Bulletproof Black
Moleskine Watercolor Book: Platinum Carbon Black
