Sketching on NY Subway, 2 bikers on the same day pretty unusual. In the evening crushed DickBlick, got drunk on art supply.
Just curious (and excuse if its a dumb question)… do you sketch it and wash it later? Or is it all done on the spot?
Really nice drawings. Serious damage at Blick? I’m with you. I’d rather spend money there (or Utrecht, NY Central, Da Vinci, etc.) than anywhere else!
@Pioniere, I used awesome Kuretake Twin Artpen, double sided. First I sketched with that flesh color Kuretake pen, then right on top used pencil, so it gave me easier way to get proportion right and pencil went just on the proper places. Next day I tried with grey Kuretake pen, I liked it less. Here color is a little too bright for me. I should try Faber Castell brush too.
@Eileen, thank you, yes, we understand each other. I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t have Fiber-Castell Durer watercolor pencils, they had, but big and too expensive sets, I wanted 24, and Dr. Martin also big sets, I wanted to try it, so bought 2 colors, they didn’t have walnut ink, but mainly I was happy, got pads and mats, ink and Stabilo pens. I saw tutorial about water soluble Stabilo pen. What is DA Vinci store? I like Pearl and Artarama in NJ, and NY Central for papers. Moleskine was too expensive there, 17 something for plain, cheaper online.
OOps, had too much fiber now (good one, from “Sahara”) so spelled it wrong. Faber-Castell.
Hi Nikira. DaVinci is an art supplies store in the midst of SVA’s buildings on W. 21st St. btwn 6th & 7th Ave. There is also one at the main building of SVA on E. 23rd. I think you can get a pretty good selection of Dr. Martin’s at 21 St. I’ve loved that beautiful line of colors since I was an art student years ago. Also, I thought I very recently saw walnut ink at Utrecht on 4th Ave. That store is usually well stocked (in what they carry) and seems to always have sales. And I agree, NY Central is paper heaven!! I really love your work and am always so pleased when you describe your process and/or materials. Thank you.
Thank you very much for info, Eileen, I will check it out. I get some nice stuff on Ebay, especially vintage or real antiques.Thank you very much for warm words. I saw Danny Gregory’s delicious video “Painting breakfast” and got interested in Dr. Martin’s. Not sure how its going to work with my muted palette.
