Sketching people with pencil (1920).
I was pretty happy to be late for appointment because it gave me extra 15 minutes of waiting and sketching. I used pencil in Moleskine. It was warm inside and crazy windy outside.
Red roofs. Drew from double parked car somewhere in Brooklyn, didn’t pay attention what street, because ran away from police, giving tickets (was waiting for Alex and parked on the on the cleaning side of the street illegally). Know that I turned somewhere from Stillwell Ave in Southern part of Brooklyn. I like these red roofs, I wish I can live in the house like this, especially if it will have wood stove with Holland tiles and dark 18 century furniture. Used ink and pencil in Moleskine.
Portrait of Maytal. I used ink and drop of Inktense pencils leftover, smudged on a plastic lid I use for palette sometimes.
As usual I used Moleskine for my daily activities dragging it through appointments, lists, curiosity and admiration for my antique 80 year old pencil. I love that this pencil looks like a pen, so it is pretty discreet when I sketch in public with “smart” face, looking like writing notes, harmless. Lead is 1.18 mm
Persimmon Margarita. It was not as delicious as it was really pretty. In this tall flute wine glasses. We listen to our long loved Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and Squirrel Nut Zippers. Never got tired of them. I used ink and Inktense pencils for bits of color in Moleskine.
Drizzle. Tried new sketchbook instead of looking for parking. 18 street in Brooklyn. Watercolor and ink on very stubborn paper.
