This was inspired by a sketching visit to the Edinburgh botanical gardens yesterday. These plants had six foot tall flower stems with seed-pod-type-things about the size of golf balls, they were amazing! In this picture I also christened some new handmade artisan ink I was given for my birthday (thankyou, wonderful friend). It’s a beautiful blue, which doesn’t show too well on this scan, and the ink flows really smoothly. It is lovely to work with.
Dip pen and ink (not waterproof).
