The opening photo of this blog post is a demo piece that I created for one of my private students. My online private tutorials are where I have been spending lots of time these days. I am working with a few students in a longer term mentoring program and I will talk a bit more about that in the future.
Today I wanted to share a few things on my desk that are making me really happy. Cornellissen's Walnut ink is my current favourite practice ink. It is not listed on their website yet as it is a fairly new product for them but this is beyond doubt the finest walnut ink for pointed pen work I have ever found. The hairlines and shades are pristine and it makes practicing much less harsh on our precious vintage nibs. Give it a try! You can send them an email and they will provide details.
