R Train to Brooklyn (Thursday, 9-16-10)
latest updates: brooklyn
Emmons Ave near Canal. Further away bunch of restaurants, marina, some stores, boats on the right, behind the bridge. Teens like to hang out here. I used 3 inks and one green color pencil Watercolor Derwent for the car in Watercolor Moleskine A4.
Yellow leaves in Brooklyn, This house at East 18 street. I liked this big bags of leaves there. Used ink and 3 Inktense pencils in WC Moleskine A4.
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.
Drizzle. Tried new sketchbook instead of looking for parking. 18 street in Brooklyn. Watercolor and ink on very stubborn paper.
Sheepshead Bay from Manhattan Beach side, view on Canal and Emmons ave. Peace and quiet on this side, shopping and restaurants on the other. I used ink and blue pencil for the bridge and roofs of Loehmann’s.
Nothing special about this street in Brooklyn, but it caught my eye. When you start wondering, you won’t notice how you start speaking in familiar language all the time, how everything translated into visual images. I used ink in Moleskine, red and yellow Pitt brushes for touch of color.
I keep inking Brooklyn in Moleskine. It seems the right media for it. I wrote in Japanese “Big Red” with a little double meaning, hope it recognizable, because it seems Japanese letters looks like mini drawings, it shows what it means. On the top just the song I listen on Pandora radio and wanted to look up. And a list to do. I like to use Moleskine as my scrap book, so it gives me all it can.
Autumn in Brooklyn. Ink. On the top is my list, I didn’t plan to use the whole spread, but brunches looked so interesting, so I let it be.
