September. Autumn has started on the northern hemisphere. The evenings are longer, the nights already cold and the days more chilly. Yet, there is still plenty of sunshine and the leaves are starting to turn yellow, brown, and red.
So what ink colors match this early Fall season? I’ve compiled a list of ten suitable colors. Fully aware that any list is arbitrary and unfair to some beautiful colors that I left out. To name a few, Montblanc’s Homage to Victor Hugo, Diamine’s Macassar, Herbin’s Lie de Thé or Cacao du Bresil, and KWZ’s Capuccino. Yes, these are all brown inks. Too early in the season. I guess I will have to write a brown ink special in a few weeks.
The colors that did make it to the list are more colorful, resembling the sunshine and colorful leaves. In random order Yama-guri (Iroshizuki), Oxblood, Autumn oak, Pumpkin, Burnt Sienna (all Diamine), Rosso antico, Red fox, James Purdey & Son single malt (all Montblanc), Habanero (Noodler’s), and SBRE Brown (PW Akkerman).
These are the ten autumn colors I picked for this blog item, I am curious to hear which one you prefer, or add your own favorite!
