I was curious up to what extent Kuretake pens will be able to go? I tried to keep it subdued, but colors played its own game. So here is delicious Nachos, my daughter made and I really enjoyed it. Kuretake pens, Kuretake 13, water brushes on Arches.

Restaurant “Mona Lisa”in Bensohurst, Brooklyn, with big pile of snow in front of it. Never eat there, just like it cozy italian looking facade with warm yellow and red roof. I drew it solely with Kuretake pens, isn’t cool? I used few “Art and Graphic twin”, “Brushables” and “Clean Color Real Brush” and of course my favorite waterbrush. Still alot to explore. On Arches watercolor book. I went to “Jerry’s Artarama” today to look at their paper selection. I liked Handmade book, looked nice, but price is crazy.
Went for a walk with a friend, drew people on the Tube (I like how Brits call Subway). Glued in PS. Writing in few languages makes me feel more like a citizen of Earth.
Manhattan. Ink on watercolor paper, yellow marker and green water soluble pencil. I like to draw with antique pencil, it makes me think in centuries, not years.
Another old treasure – propelling pencil from Japan. It has interesting back of the pencil, comes off with upside down eraser, locking compartment with extra leads, 1.18mm size. Matte finish helps to hold non slippery pencil comfortably while drawing.
Sketched cup of tea with french mints. Used ink and touch of Gretacolor Aqua Brique made in Austria. It is watercolor in block form, looks like enlarged toy, but comfortable with water brush. Would be hard to carry around, but good at home. Drew my cat coasters we got in St Augustine, Florida, in that amazing Cat store.
It is not that easy to see the sky between tall buildings in the city. Ink and Kuretake pen brush in Moleskine. Couple of colors with that vintage Faber pencils.
City from the car window. Ink in Moleskine and few Eberhard Faber “Paint with Pencils” pencils from 1950 (I believe). I got to investigate for sure how old this set is. Pencils a bit scratchy, but so adorable.
Could not resist a good deal on Ebay, got “perfect” pencil. Read interesting reviews on it, how comfortable it is on the go with sharpener and lead protector in the cap. It will fit Palomino and Blackwing pencils. Awesome. With metal cap it cost enormous money $250-495, I am good with plastic one. Drew it with ink and few colored Faber-Castell pencils in Moleskine on the top of scribbling in the doc office.
