Great ink for sketching and drawing

I'm an artist who's come late to pen and ink work, simply because I'm left-handed and have always found dip nibs and fountain pens a literal pain to use. I'm now using a range of fude fountain nibs, drawing and folded nibs and ruling pens.

R&K SketchINK is one of very few fountain pen ink ranges suitable for fine art use, but I find it works very well in all the nib types I've mentioned. That said, there is no pigment information on the label, which is a no-no in professional artwork, where lightfastness is essential.

'Lilly' is an especially useful colour for general sketching, being a less starkly graphic alternative to black. It's also an excellent colour for winter landscapes, e.g. woodland, rock, peat moorland etc. It resembles a green-shade raw umber (PBr7), but it's clear from my own tests that it contains a separate green pigment, muted in character, besides a brown earth. I would guess the green is PG23, but I'd prefer to know for sure.

quite dry

This ink is quite dry, so when in an extra fine nib it is not saturated. you need a wet nib for the full color. I use this nib with a wet broad and it give a great strong line
