That title may make absolutely no sense at all. Yet it makes perfect sense to me. Because – yes, my brain works that way. Hahahahaha!
You may have seen me mention the absurd amount of snow we’ve gotten this winter in Maine. Last count I had was around 160 inches, the yearly average is 90 so we got a lot more than we needed. The good news is we are having some higher temps – finally – and it is raining today. And the snow IS MELTING!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!! I do love snow but we had so much we couldn’t really enjoy it. See that little shoot down the back? That is where the bear cave is that I posted about a couple days ago. It won’t be long till they come out and we see who we get to host this spring and summer in our back yard.
I had a massive headache yesterday. I have found that drawing takes my mind off the pain and focuses me elsewhere and before I know it the headache is gone. I was hoping that would work yesterday – and it did mostly. I pulled out my Grey Book from Hahnemühle and Zensation Fountain Pens from Zebra Pen and sat down to draw. No plan in mind and these loosey gooseys just came out of the pen. Tangling with these fountain pens worked pretty well. I had to go back over lines in a couple places – which made the loosey goosey florals the perfect choice. They require some extra lines. Zebra sells these pens in several different sets. The set I have has seven colors. I used five of the seven in this drawing. What I did not know before this was that I could add water to the lines with a water brush and turn this fountain pen ink into a sort of watercolor wash. Keeping in mind the massive size of my headache will help you accept the loose lines a lot better. Hahahaha! Now I am curious to try these with more water in a more definite setting of lines. I do love how smooth they worked with the Grey Book. I am trying to put together a set of art big enough using the Grey Book to make a review. You will be seeing this again when I do. Now. I am going to take more Tylenol and sit in my recliner for awhile. Have a super rest of the weekend!
