New Utrecht Ave train station in Brooklyn charmed me with green balls and stained glass decorations on the corners, even it looked a bit deserted and spooky. I used Diamine ink, touch of watercolor from my faithful Bijou box and a bit of Kuretake watercolor pens.
It says Smile in Japanese. I am finally trying Diamine ink in a full range. I like the color and flow, it is a very friendly sepia.
This weekend I became a happy owner of Kindle, present from my daughter, thank you tredecillion times Inna!
So what can I do? Draw.
I Used Diamine ink and green Kuretake for eyes on Bockingford 90 lb paper.
Bryant Park in Manhattan. I pass this park on the way to my dentist. Like to draw there alone. Used Noodler’s ink and Kuretake.
Tangerine juice. Homey kitchen scene. It said “Tangerine juice” in Japanese. This cute juicer I bought few years ago on flea market at Coney Island, some vintage piece.
I used Pear ink and new sample of Noodler’s, color made with few Kuretake pens.
Tired. Sketching on NY Subway. Blackwing 602. The way his boots were turned inwards, his interlocked fingers, all his slouchy, a bit cartoony figure – all was the essence of tiredness and exhaustion. Brought to mind Van Gogh’s workers, I felt bad for him and wished him well and better life.
