A drawing done to test a new pen nib, the fabled Somerville Spear, reputedly the finest drawing nib ever created. I found 2 in a stall in Paris. They were indeed fabulous, almost as flexible as a brush, but springy and fabulously lively. You get the impression from the line-quality on the drawing. Unfortunately my first one was toast by the end of this drawing. I'm saving the last one for when I REALLY need cheering up.
