The Galen leather bag is just stunning. Have been lusting after that myself since I first saw it.
Not sure I'll ever be granted an unlimited spend up again for art supplies. 😄 Last night, a seller accepted my 'offer' on a vintage Montblanc. The nib design looks to be the same as the Lamy 2000—who copied who? I'll be interested to test it beside the Lamy 2000. I'm loving using my Lamy 2000 pens in a painterly way.
Yes I have (that colour) writer's bag, very handy indeed! Love their products - I have some of their brass things and a pencil sharpener, and another A5 zipped notebook cover with a couple of TR notebooks on order, not expecting them for a few weeks yet. All ways happy with their stuff, has an old fashioned quality and feel to it! Love it!
A $2,000. spend up, a gift for a coming birthday. This leather writer's bag—which I first saw and lusted after here. Many gold nibbled vintage pens. Lamy 2000 (my preferred pen) in BB to complete my set of every size. For sketching, I adore Lamy 2000. I dislike anything that has a cartridge or converter insert—not enough ink in those for my artwork. I will have some good pens to resell—when I get around to it. A5 sketch and Watercolour pads and A5 leather cover. Some brass fittings for bag, ruler etc. My favourite DE ATRAMENTIS Permanent Document *Ink in white, grey and two shades and hue variations of brown. Colour sample sets of two other ink brands, total 16 colours. Beginning to collect all of the dye based Van Dieman's Inks.
Set of three Australian Sketchbook ink line and watercolour wash artworks underway featuring an old gold miner's gully with what I think from the look of the timbers in black wattle, or it might be Cootamundra wattle. I will ask around and find out. It should look effective when finished with the soft blue-green foliage, the yellow blooms, against the black tree branches—then of course, all the boots. It is called Boot's Gully, and Australians have a wicked sense of humour. I'm painting one of the works tilted sideways to add to the quirkiness of the scene.
