After reading a lot of FB posts from my fellow Sketchbook Skool klassmates about using brown ink for drawing, I decided to give it a try during my stay in Italy and got a few different pens to try out. Here I used Derwent’s Graphink Line Maker – sepia.

The subject of the drawing was a Bar, which we were passing by while travelling from Siena to our camp site. We didn’t plan to stop there, but while driving I when I noticed the place I imediately knew I had to draw it.

And I have to say I like the colour a lot. As well as other brown ones I got to try.

Recently it has become my colour of choice.
