Driveway on Long Island. Old and modern cars. Ink and Kuretake.
latest updates: car
Periwinkle car on Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, main artery leading to the ocean, which starts behind that bridge with the “Q” train running over it. Brighton Beach Ave is under the train.
I used Sepia ink and few Kuretake pens on Hahnemuhle torchon paper.
It was pretty strange to meet this car somewhere in the mountains, don’t even know where, we GPS-ed Home Depot along the road to pick up a belt for an injured young athlete. Don’t even know how old is this beauty. Ink and red Kuretake pen on old paper.
A little bit too industrial looking street, Ave V in Brooklyn, but for me car compensate for it, white color of this car was shining like morning sun. I used couple of inks and few Kuretake brush pens.
Above: I find it funny to see people driving around an old car trying to make it smells like NEW with a “New Car freshener” (the classic tree air freshener hanging on the mirror).
Below: Newer building out here started to look tacky and unappealing nowadays.. I don’t know which is worse… A cookie-cutter stucco building with modern architect…Or…. Cookie-cutter stucco building with a boring look?
Dead end. Fifteen minutes in the car, waiting and watching black cat hunting a bird, drawing spastically with Lamy Safari.
Driving to Chicago. Pen in Moleskine cahier
