Bread. Ink and Kuretake. Bread from the corner store, we get it early in the morning freshly baked and hot.
Musician Alex. It was pretty surprising to hear my childhood songs highlighted by saxophone, while I was drawing trees and brunches for old people. My father use to collect songs, so I heard many from old times and they dear to my heart.
I outlined the figure of musician and the rest dissolved into the light. I used ink and gold watercolor for saxophone, it doesn’t scan well.
Sketches in the hospital and on the train back. I spent a day in the hospital with my friend, who undergo very serious operation. I am happy it went well and better than expected and I will have my friend back in better health. I used different pencils: Blackwing 602, Durer, Faber-Castell, Pitt oil. I even took sharpener with me. Here is half of the pages I sketched that day.
Potato skins. As much as I was able to finish this drawing, because potato was eaten and a few given to a friend, and many things happened, pretty heart breaking, but life is going on. The recipe was very interesting, from Google somewhere and it was a pleasure assisting my daughter to make it, it calls “Soft Potato Skins”, with fake bacon (my daughter doesn’t eat meat) and sour cream.
I used ink and Inktense blocks, it was a present from Bob, from Scotland, really interesting technique. THANK YOU, BOB!
Fire trucks on the road side. I used watercolor(Bijou box) with water brush and Uranus pen for outlining.
I got bunch of Stillman&Birn sketchbooks as a present from them and experimenting in different series. Here first page in “Delta”. I used Bijou box of watercolors and Uranus pen (double sided with brush and pen), paper is pretty thick, 180 lb. Stove. I sketch in at list 9 sketchbooks at the same time.
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY. It says online that in the mid-seventeenth century Dutch settlers called this part of Brooklyn Yellow Hook because of the color of the soil. ink and Kuretake brush pens.
