2.5 x 3.5" artist trading card, white india ink on watercolor, watercolor paper
I stumbled on my long forgotten Rapidograph set, circa 1980's. Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph technical pens are produced in the Czech Republic. Each pen has an ink barrel which you can fill with india ink or fountain pen ink. The set has a variety of nib sizes. I tried out the .5 nib with a new bottle of Doc Martin's Bombay White india ink. The mandala was drawn on an artist trading card made from cutting up an abstract watercolor painting (see How to Make ATCs from Abstract Art). Couldn't wait to see what would happen... drew this at the kitchen counter while dinner was cooking!
