Breezing Into Blooms - 4
The 'easy' part of the pump is now done - the 'hard' part, that of having that white area covered more or less evenly light, remains... this means having the nib tip just touch the canvas for the tiniest of dots, over and over and over... the easiest way to do this is to hold the pen such that one of the fingers hits the canvas first and acts like a spring so that the nib tip just barely hits the canvas - and do this repeatedly until the area is covered...
Had hoped to get this all done, but found myself engrossed in The Girl Who Played with Fire - and ended up staying up all night [great book, second of a great trilogy], so only got this much done today -
