A friend of mine came down from Los Angeles and while we sat at the Oceanside Marina I drew these birds sitting on the beach. Mostly pigeons. They were drawn with fountain pen on craft paper in a moleskine sketchbook.
latest updates: fountain pen
Filling my fountain pens with Lexington Gray Noodlers was the best thing I ever did. I can now use them in my Moleskines without fear of smudging or rubbing off.
inspired by patterns made by the clusters of mussels that can be found on the rocks on the north coast of Cornwall and the colours of the beautiful cornish sea.

Water pencil and fountain pen on small Moleskine.
Quick fountain pen portrait sketch of a member of a virtual portrait party. It one of a series that I’m doing to practice drawing with a fountain pen.
Trying to get a grip on drawing with a fountain pen that I got for my birthday, I decided to start doing quick portrait sketches with it on a regular basis (preferably every day). This is one I did of Kate, a member of a virtual portrait party. Her picture in which she’s wearing a striking striped sweater and her description in which she says to be an avid surfer inspired me to give it this twist. Concerning the waves, I tried to add a touch of Hiroshige.
Waiting for the maestro. Another sketch inspired by aspects of Bonnards work as seen in a recent exhibition, particularly an interior scene, perspective, a faithful little (dachshund) dog and a cat demanding attention. It started out as a quick preliminary sketch of this idea I had for a watercolour, but I got a bit carried away drawing with my new fountain pen and eventually decided to just leave it as it is and do a separate watercolour version later on.
I was waiting for a friend after work in First Plaza in Albuquerque, so I decided to draw this tree.
Done with my new Rotring Art Pen (sketch nib, extra fine). My little brother got it for me for my birthday!
