This piece uses a red 0.7mm gel pen , and a deep purple ZIG 0.25mm pigment multiliner . This piece is done in the style refered to as Horror Vacui, as it utilizes all open spaces with detail. It was a particularly challenging piece, I am pleased with the outcome, tho my neck would argue otherwise.
Second to the last page of my old Moleskine, entitled “Brigitte Caught Them”.
Reminds me of a simple spring wedding and the silly feeling of victory after catching the bouquet. Done with Faber Castell Watercolor Pencils and brush.
I entered a flower shop and I quickly sketched some things I liked. A few minutes later, in a restaurant, the waiter brought me a bad coffee and I used the last drops to put some shadows on the sketch, so I used the coffee plate as a palette. Is the first time I did this on a normal Moleskine, so I didn’t knew the paper is too thin for this. The waiter, with his big moustache decorating my right shoulder, started telling me a story about an old friend in the army while I was still sketching other things and faces around me. Maybe next time he’ll serve me a better coffee. I hope.

Autumn is my favorite season, so around this time of year a lot of my doodles and stray thoughts turn to autumn and all the things I love about it.
