There are the tools that I keep in readiness always: pencils sharpened, different types of pens refilled and in good condition. I go shopping exclusively for pencils and pens, try the various gel , uniball, ink ball pens. My favourite haunt is Reynolds ‘Write Rite’ where I end up buying a dozen pens every visit. My home and office are well stocked with different types of drawing pens and pencils. I drew this with Reynolds ink ball .7. I photoshopped the background with 19 sized brush stroke, I didn’t have the patience to crosshatch with my ink pen.
