Red roofs. Sepia ink, pen, a bit of watercolor in Moleskine WC A4.
Dunkin Donuts in the City. I got really interesting calligraphy fountain pen, Hero M86 Chinese pen with bended nib, standing like a ballerina on her toes (very cheap, $12). Here I used it both ways and difference in thickness is amazing. I saw it by Tia from Singapore on Flickr and loved her line work. Here added some touches of markers. Never thought I’ll end up using markers in my sketches.
Eddie’s Pizza Truck in Manhattan. Falcon fountain pen and Faber-Castell colored pencils in Moleskine sketch. It is 14 today, elki-palki.
Hartmann’s Kaffee Haus, operated by Germans. Upstate, NY. We use to go there for sweets, authentic European cakes, cookies and pies. Food is also delicious, sausages. But mainly it was for a view on the way, called 5 Points, where you can see in the ocean of blue air 5 states, laying like you would see it from the airplane, like alive map. We called it celebration of life. Watercolor in Fabriano book.
Motorcycle. That was a pretty one on the pavement of Sheepshead Bay Road in Brooklyn. I like boys toys. I used small Winsor and Newton watercolor in WC Moleskine A4, one Koi water brush with diluted blue watercolor and one Conceal Beauty makeup brush from CVS Pharmacy. And Kuretake 13.
Brooklyn Bridge. Shorty pencil and bits of watercolor in Moleskine sketch. Going back to pencil, back to the roots.
I have interesting ability to see things, I saw before in a new light, every time is a first time. I forget how it looked before. This why I am never bored. (May be everybody is like me?) So this how I saw the place, where we usually go for cat food, this time, with dramatic shadows and bits of red. Watercolor (Japanese) and ink in Arches book.
I used here 3 languages, funny, as a frame. Decorations on the plate I did with a brush pen, Kuretake 13. I thought it would be interesting contrast with watercolor. I used watercolor Lukas in WC Moleskine. This is my first EDM challenge. Draw what you ate for dinner (in Chinese characters), hopefully it is a little bit recognizable. I bought ingredients in Chinese store on Ave U and used my imagination, it turned out pretty delicious.
Vegetable Parmesan. “Shorty” is a fat short pencil with 3.15 mm lead, Worther, from Germany. So I was dragging my pencil around and draw what I saw to give it a try. Fennel looks very interesting and adds a lot of flavor to amazing Vegetable Parmesan dish.
