Diamine Inkvent 2022 Day 7: Alpine

Day 7 is upon us, with its candy cane door:

Day 7’s ink is Diamine Alpine, it’s a dark grey green with green shimmer in it, and it’s delightful.

The Col-o-Ring swab shows off some of the shading properties of this ink. It really reminds me of Diamine Umber, one of my favourite Diamine inks, with an additional pizzaz of sparkles.

Like Diamine Umber, Diamine Alpine is a fun ink to sketch with, and should work particularly well on cream coloured paper. Here is a sketch on tomoe river paper, where you can see the shading and a bit of the shimmer:

The shimmer here is subtle, which works well with this muted shade of green. It doesn’t overshadow the shading properties of this ink, but rather adds to it. The result is interesting and festive – a worthy addition to the Diamine Christmas ink lineup.
