Welcome Katherine T!

Hello Katherine T, and welcome!

I spent some time at your excellent online sketchbook. Now that things have returned to normal here I can start thinking about adding more links to the "sketchers on the web" section on the homepage. With your permission I'd like to add yours (if it is not already there).

If anybody else has a link that I've overlooked, please let me know. I'm sure I've overlooked several!

Thank you, that evens out the three columns. :)

But just going back a little bit I see I didn't add the web site of r.e.wolf either (I could probably find more if I went back further).

r.e.wolf, would you like yours added as well?

That'd be great, Russ - so long as uneven columns won't bug you!

Hello sketchers

Post by Bill Sharp » Wed Dec 27, 2006 4:54 am

I've been visiting this forum for some time with interest.

Russell's sketch book has inspired me, along with the Sketchcrawl site. I've always wanted to do more on site painting but hated the idea of dragging a lot of crap along. Russell and Enrico, from Sketchcrawl, have shown me tools that make it so easy to go out and sketch with a minimum of trouble.

I've been sketching pretty much everyday for the past couple of months and recently participated in the 12th World Wide Sketchcrawl. I've been having a lot of fun with this and really appreciate Russell's willingness to share what he's learned with the world.

Thanks Russel!

Welcome TMLee! I hadn't realized the Nakaya folks had this forum linked on their page. I have some of their fountain pens, and they are great.

Glad you found this place!

Hi RS...
Yes , I am interested in Nakaya pens.

What I need to know is how flexy is their elastic nibs compared to their standard soft medium nibs compared to the Danitrio Raw Ebonite Flexy Stub nib(I have this pen)

And oh , for sketch content here - I can't find them penbrushes here in Singapore.

I tried the Nakaya elastic nib pen and it was pretty flexible. I have never tried the other one you mention.

Brush pens are great! Definitely worth buying one online.

Hi Cameron,

Welcome to the Sketch Forum. I confess I need to get out and sketch more as well, now that the weather is warming up. The die-hard sketchers here have a right to pile up on me for admitting that. :)

Hello gang, my name is Trevor and I'm ... whoops, wrong speech. :oops:

Well my name is Trevor so let's carry on from there. I found Russ' site several moons ago, shortly after my New Year's resolution to try to learn to sketch and draw. I must admit that it influenced me hugely because he's done and is doing pretty much exactly the kind of thing I want to learn to do.

I love the look and feel of pen and ink and, on Russ' recommendations on his site, have a brush pen which I really enjoy too. Great little tool, though I can see it's going to take me a very l o n g time to learn to use it well.

Like many of you my interests have tended to swing in the fountain pen, waterproof ink direction and I must confess I'm now up to my ears in both, and papers too. Fortunately I live in Paris and if there's one thing this city is good for it's art supplies. The French adore the whole "beaux arts" thing and it seems there's a decent shop in every quartier.

Anyway, there it is, my intro. If you'd care to have a boo at my scratchings and scribblings swing by my humble blog. It isn't much so please lower your expectations.

Regards,
Trevor aka inkysmudges
