Similar Inks: Diamine Sunshine Yellow and Rohrer & Klingner Helianthus

Diamine Sunshine Yellow and Rohrer & Klingner Helianthus

When I was recently swabbing some new fountain pen inks, I happened to notice some similarities...

Shown above are Diamine's Sunshine Yellow and Rohrer & Klingner's Helianthus. I mainly use the Sunshine for creating art, and have not yet tried the Helianthus.

I'm not suggesting that these inks are similar in any characteristics other than the colors I saw on that day and in that light.

Black & White Mandala over Yellow Diamine Ink

I think I used Sunshine Yellow for the background on this mandala... though it could have been Yellow. (Also by Diamine.)

Lovely, sunny drawing! I also have these two inks and love them dearly - and can't separate them... :)
