Master studies continues, another Rubens with burnt sienna. Dip pens are fun at the same time tricky ones to work with. If there's lots of ink in the nib it will blot on the paper, if you dip less ink then strokes remain incomplete. Hence i use water to dilute the ink for smoother flow and also for the lighter areas. For the darker areas, once a layer is dry, i apply another layer of ink!
