Video: fountain pen drawing tips

Pen Drawing Tips from Graham Smith on Vimeo.

I drew this lovely young woman with my super trusty Lamy Safari fountain pen. I carry it with me everywhere. That little pen is a sketch booking workhorse, particularly when filled with Platinum Carbon ink, a truly waterproof ink that won't clog a fountain pen. It's my favorite fountain pen and ink combo! This drawing was done with a medium sized nib.

To draw the thinnest lines, flip the nib to the backside, and draw lightly with the "foot" of the nib. To draw thicker lines, hold with pen in the "right side up" position, and press!

Happy drawing!
