My new LAMY Safari pen in yellow. This is a great fountain pen for sketching. I ordered this one with a medium point and found it to be a little more bold of a line than I like. So, I ordered a fine point nib and like the line weight much better.
I am an artist blacksmith and former watercolor artist. I own a lot of sketchbooks and some of them even have sketches in them. I'm hoping that this web site and the ability to post my sketchbook pages will give a little incentive to sketch every day. And I would think that being in the company of people who do sketch daily will give me incentive to just do the work. My interests for sketching are old buildings and anything railroad. I am a railfan and try to take time to go and photograph trains. Train watching provides me with a lot of free time since there is a lot of time between trains so I should be able to fill volumes. For anyone interested in my blacksmith work, www.thayerhouse.com/Doug will get you to my pages.
