By outlining ink drawing with sepia Letter pen Cocoiro I wanted to show energy of morning city, full of life, cars, noise, moving wheels. I couldn’t resist adding hieroglyphs (from translator). I used Kuretake brush pens for color and mixed ink in Fabriano pad.
latest updates: Kuretake
Mountain house. Ink and few Kuretake pens in watercolor Moleskine. This time I made few puddles of ink and add color from it. This few wet spots looks like tears drops. Tear drops for time when we were so happy there, or from cold I am suffering today? In reality it is green water brush, Kuretake, with big barrel.
Baked fish. Kuretake pens in Watercolor Moleskine A4. I wanted to leave a lot of white paper for contrast, freshness, for color to show more. Red is pretty reserved. I used Kuretake Zig lines: Clean Color, Brushables and Twin. And for lettering I used Zig Letter Pen, Cocoiro, I set it up today, it has cute design, you have to combine it yourself.
Chelsea, Manhattan. Drew with bunch of Kuretake pens and ink on watercolor paper. Open new water brush, green color with big barrel, Kuretake. I love green color, the color of my daughter’s eyes.
This time I tried to keep Kuretake low key and used mostly ink and few Kuretake pens: ZIG ART & GRAPHIC TWIN and ZIG CLEAN COLOR REAL BRUSH. I really like dual points and watercolor like quality. This 303 Twin blue is awesome for sky and snow. Most of tall Kuretake doesn’t fit into my beloved Nomadic pencil case, I think I should look for bigger version of Kutsuwa Dr. Ion Mega Pencil Case. It is fun to have just pens with you and water brushes.
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.
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.
“Selena’s Diner”. Went to get burgers on the way from Hudson. Ink, Sepia, pencil, Kuretake 13 in plain Moleskine.
McDonald Ave under the F train in Brooklyn. Industrial street with auto shops, tire shops, metal work, heating supplies. Enjoyed Kuretake 13 in Moleskine plain sketchbook.
