Inkvent 2019 – Day 23: Roasted Chestnut (standard)

This is a lovely, deep, warm brown the colour of… well…. anyway. Warmer than Triple chocolate, lighter and warmer than Nutcracker, but more of a red brown instead of the warmer yellow brown of Gingerbread. Nice shading – I think this would look outstanding with an italic nib.

I dug out the section of Rhodia that had some additional (non-Diamine) browns for comparison, and have taken some liberties with photoshop to rearrange the placement in one of the images just to make comparison easier.

So… I don’t know about you, but I am still waiting for a purple. I’m wondering if they did something kitschy & clever like saving it for tomorrow… while dreams of sugar plums dance through our heads. Two more sleeps until Christmas!
