Two carousel horses this time.
I worked on a pair of horses today from the Janzten Beach Carousel restoration project. I intended to work with a bolder than I usually use pen (02 Micron) but didn’t realize until I was nearly done that it was running out of ink and in the process it was creating very fine lines, finer than my usual 005 pen. Microns are nice because they are very portable and don’t leak or clog but when they run out of ink they aren’t refillable which is a problem when one is working on site and can’t trade it out with another pen. So I finished it with what I had thankful the expiring Micron pen kept drawing to the end but it turned out to be a much more delicate drawing than I had originally intended it to be.
