I drew in pencil, than with Falcon. I love this pen, just to screw and unscrew the cap fills me with joy.
Under the train, traffic. Brooklyn,NY.
Under the train. Traffic. Brooklyn.
I missed using Lamy Safari with ink, responding to water brush. I add Faber-Castell colored pencils for the sky.
Overpass above Belt Parkway, seems like weird and magic place, like you are flying above noisy city, where nothing matters, only green, dark, leafy solitude. I was thinking to do it in color. But end up using watersoluble graphite.
Illustration to a song, I got somewhere on internet and liked to listen while driving. I got this image in my head, behind a girl is her sorrow, kinda motherly sorrow. Today I found this song on Youtube and read that the woman who sings it made words and music herself. “Again I am standing alone, again I am smoking, mama…”
Visiting my friends. I used Winsor and Newton small watercolor only (drawn here). Was a little too weird not to have regular red, here is Alizarin crimson, but I mixed it a little with yellow and it gave me red. Meat was delicious, so I wanted to pay tribute to this spontaneous party and our drawing session afterwards.
F train seats are really uncomfortable, you just facing the whole row of people, no privacy at all. So I sketched in little squared Moleskine really fast, so people won’t get mad, that I looked at them. Pencil Shorty.
Really pretty place, some kind of a park with boats and trees along the Belt, I looked at many times. On the way to White Planes, struggling in traffic, it was a moment of happiness. Sepia ink and Faber-Castell colored pencils in my red Moleskine.
View from the car window. Corner of Coney Island Ave and Brighton in Brooklyn. I really miss drawing with Sepia, but pencil is better for quick studies and more discrete. Used Fabriano watercolor book.
