greens and blue-greens, ink edition

I go through colour phases. A long time ago when family tried to get me to stop wearing so much black (I live in NYC, I wear black, deal), I shifted through the colour spectrum more frequently. During each colour shift, it seems almost everything I acquire ends up that colour. It isn’t conscious I just look up and suddenly everything all my accessories are shade of green. I’ve been in the green phase for a several years now. It’s a good place to be and I find it easier to mix two shades of green than I can other hues. I realized that a secondary colour arrived. Perhaps it began with the surprisingly perfect sweater. It has now expanded into my ink collection.

Inks shown are Noodler’s General of the Armies, J Herbin Vert Empire, J Herbin Lierre Sauvage, J Herbin Poussière de Lune, and a mystery teal cartridge.

Do you have a favourite fountain pen ink? I love J Herbin’s Poussière de Lune the most.
