Finishing off a drawing from a visit with my brother to Harper’s Ferry in the Fall. It was late in the day with intense shadows. Watersoluble graphite
Thanks, Nikira! BTW, since you are an aficionado of brush pens, you should know that you can take the weasel brushes from kuretake/platinum brush pens and insert them into Noodler’s Conrad brush pen bodies. This gives you a beautiful, real-hair brush pen with some control over flow. I use it for some of the finer work.
Wow, really? Thank you for advice. I looked, no Noodler’s Conrad brush pen is available.
I have amazing Kuretake 13 brush pen, but it is only filled with cartridges and only black, and I like sepia. Also bottled ink usually kills the head of the brush pen quickly. How you protecting yours? Weasel brush pens pretty expensive. Only head is cheaper, around $30.
I guess I should have checked before tempting you. Sorry. I bought the replacement head for $30 since I didn’t need the entire pen. Also, I use it as a waterbrush, not to directly lay down ink. However, I do however normally use it to move around Diamine Chocolate Brown (my choice for “sepia”) ink which is very water soluble. I haven’t noticed any build up in the brush and I normally don’t rinse it but just wipe it on a cloth. Finally, note that Noodler sells/sold replacement nylon brushes at ~3/$1. (The $1 brush is actually split into three brushes for the standard size.) That cost means that the brush is disposable in my book. Finally, you can completely disassemble the Konrad brush for cleaning.
