Brooklyn, Pioneer street. Ink and Kuretake pens.
“Story Farm” in Catskills, Upstate, in ink and Kuretake on vintage paper. My favorite place for fresh produce.
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.
