Lennon Tool Bar Hard Rime on Tomoe River

Ink

This ink colour was inspired by the look of hard rime freezing on the leaves of coniferous trees. Having spent all my life in a place without seasons, I have no idea what hard rime means. From Wikipedia, rime is a type of ice that “forms when supercooled water liquid droplets freeze onto surfaces”. Compared to soft rime, hard rime is denser, less milky and has a comb-like structure.

This muted grey-green ink conveys a sense of cold quietness and isolation. This is a colour that would work well in a professional setting. I really like this colour and felt it is a pity that Lennon Tool Bar released it as a Winter 2019 limited edition ink.

This ink has a wet flow. On Tomoe River paper, there is shading, no sheen, no feathering and pinpricks of bleedthrough.
