Painted Pen “Bird Flourish” No. 7

Painted Pen “Bird Flourish” No. 7

One of the biggest challenges about painting pens is to make sure that it looks good on every angle of the pen. Sometimes some areas will look good but the back looks sparse, or one side looks weird.. I gotta say this one turned out to look on every angle. Hence all the photos, it looks like two different pens but actually it’s all on one pen!

I was severely tempted to keep this pen! I think I just might!

This is a collaboration with Brian Smith of Unique Obliques.
