Here are some studies/doodles I've done with a fountain pen.

Never really used cross hatching properly, but beginning to get used to it!

Really great work Lash, but I'm curious why a fountain pen? I would think a fine point gel pen would work fine...but then I don't know.

The picture of the fountain pen took me back to my childhood. The desks that we had in school when I first started school in 1953 had ink wells. The ball point pen was invented sometime in the 50's but I can't tell you when our school switched from ink pens to ball points. I know that still when I was in the upper grades of school we used Fountain pens that had cartridges of ink inside them instead of sucking up the ink from the well.
