Cherries on my desk. Sometimes harder your life on you more you appreciate little things happening, which slipped away before. More you think what is really matters. Anyway here is a little mess and a regular day with plans and worries. My pretty Rembrandt watercolors which still waiting to be used and appreciated and couple of new piston water brushes I got on Ebay. I used ink and Inktense pencils for this drawing.
Small trip to “Century 21″ (department store in Brooklyn, where you can buy cool designer clothes for fraction of the cost, not for me though, because for me exist only art tools and books), turned into a pleasant adventure, I met this old red car. I used ink and a bit of watercolor and outlined with Hero pen using nib from both sides. I love this pen’s versatility, the only problem it runs out of ink very quickly. And I am not carrying bottle of ink with me since that time in my student years in Moscow when wind overturned bottle of ink and my stepmother’s white mackintosh was all covered with black-and-purple spots.
7th Ave, Manhattan, view from the window. Ink, bits of watercolor, markers and Hero pen with bent nib.
Last page in my watercolor Moleskine A4. “Liza- the love of our family*Here is her favorite pose to lay down belly up and pretend to be dead*She is my best sleeping pill*I know she reads my thoughts, all animals do*She is teaching us to love, forgive and accept*She loves chicken, I learn to share my lunch*She loves to talk when we have girl-talk, we talk about guys*Лиза*”
Typical scene in Manhattan, street food stand with attractive umbrella. My favorite was at 14 street Downtown, (when we did mural with Brooklyn bridge and Twin towers in one loft), I use to get sausage on a stick there for lunch. Unforgettable. Inks and Kuretake pens for color.
It was pretty strange to meet this car somewhere in the mountains, don’t even know where, we GPS-ed Home Depot along the road to pick up a belt for an injured young athlete. Don’t even know how old is this beauty. Ink and red Kuretake pen on old paper.
