Drew this sketch before breakfast in Stillman and Birn little Delta sketchbook, 6″x8″, using pencil and wash. Drew this water soluble pencil over the sketch. Start drawing cat but he relocate soon to my knee, to observe the room from the other side.
Experiment with silhouette against the light. Not easy to create that effect with wet ink, but I am glad I tried. Used couple of inks on old paper. Used Italian language here.
I wrote “memories” in Japanese. It has sort of nostalgic feel to it, how I see it in my mind, in sepia, through the shadow of eyelashes, a bit fading, but happy. In reality, when we tired and hungry, sometimes, getting of the train it is a sweet pleasure to pick up here something on the way home, sushi or soup and eat (with a lot of pickled ginger for me) and watch TV or just chat about today’s happenings or plans for tomorrow.
I used ink on old piece of watercolor paper. I used up all ink on it and now up to another trip to my big ink bottle, a happy event.
Journaling and scribbling thru the day. This stick figures I use to draw on envelopes for my friends and family @ the prehistoric era b4 computers.
Tuna melt. It is more like a journal page, I didn’t mean to write my thoughts, especially on 2 languages, but no matter how much I try – I can’t avoid emotions, because color, smell, taste, shape, joy of being with someone you love, happiness of being able to do and feel – triggers emotions and urges me to draw.
I used ink and Kuretake pens and one Durer pencil on amazing Saunders Waterford Watercolor Paper. This paper made me breathless.
One of the hopeful mornings, one of the happy breakfasts, delicious sandwich with smoked salmon and eggs halfway scrambled, halfway omelet, sunny conversation, brief hug and happy painting. One of the days to remember. Ink and Kuretake on Winsor & Newton.
Going back and forth to Long Island I was stopped by the flaming skies, it is near fire station. I am looking at the sky more than ever before, amazed by humongous symphony someone is playing every day for us, people. It changes quickly, leaving trembling melody in my heart. So I was trying to capture the moment. Used ink and Kuretake brush pens.
