Think Ink

Another Lost Victorian Country House. Yes, I'm a bit morbid. This is Millearne in Perthshire.

Drawn in pen and ink. Proper pen with a nib and proper ink in a glass jar with a squeezy dropper. So much better than modern pens, old pens make a varied and chaotic line.

Important note to self: work from left to right if right handed. It takes Ages to dry.

I remember leaning handwriting with cartridge pens when I was young, I always got huge blobs and smears everywhere. Now I embrace blobs and smears, perfect is boring.
