P.W. Akkerman Israel's Zeeblauw
Has the typical European ink pastel look, Gray undertones, just as many Oriental inks are wont to do. Hue is on the lighter side. Varies with paper: on Apica CD11 it has a light pastel tone with well defined edges, also Halo effect; on Rhodia #16 Dot Pad it exhibits a very pleasing shade of light pastel Blue; looks best on ClaireFontaine notebook super smooth, coated paper - it then becomes a darker shade, more pronounced, has more "pop," looks less boring, less dull.
If you prefer European restrained inks, versus American and Australian deeper, darker, more saturated inks, it is sure to please.
