Any pen and ink people here? I have fooled around with it over the years, and in the last year, I have set myself to try and master it. Hopefully in the next year, I can devote enough time to it. I have used quill pens I fashioned myself, sharpened wood sticks, reed pens, and steel ones. The quill seems the best for my purposes, but lately I am using the store bought metal ones with store bought ink. I don't do any underdrawing in pencil or charcoal, etc., as I want to build my skills and confidence just doing it directly. Just doing old master copies of prints, etc. right now.
Drawing/Painting is the most fulfilling vocation to me. Nothing else even comes close.
