First page in Delta. My favorite Red Dot knife.
latest updates: sketch
Smokers pencil on the top of sketch. This is pretty old pencil, from 1920-30. The pocket clip is in a beautiful Art Deco design.
The top of the pencil is used as a pipe bowl packer. Inside there is a stem which is used for loosening tobacco and clearing tobacco from the bowl.
The stem makes an ideal cigar piercer.
I figure out why I couldn’t post it for a while, because file was named Smoker’s as soon as I eliminate ‘ it posted normally. Glad, I solved it.
Memories of Boo
A few sketches for a project in memory of my cat, Boo, who died in her sleep curled up in the sun about a week ago. She was sixteen and, while I’m glad she went peacefully, and I’ve known it was coming for a little while now, I still miss her.
A stem of flowers pressed in my pocket molie and an impression of them on the facing page.
Quick watercolor of rocks and grass Upstate. Used vintage Rembrandt watercolor and water brush in Stillman & Birn Delta.
Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn. I used J.Herbin ink and few drops of blue watercolor. And listened to “Sunday Driver” songs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCfbWrQkf6c
Looking at Verrazano bridge through the trees. I pass that place hundred times and often stare at this beauty against the sky, and it seems that wind plays music on its strings like on gigantic harp.
Verrazano connects Brooklyn and Staten Island, where we have to take another bridge North through Goethals and South through Outerbridge, it is our way to New Jersey, unless we want to go through Manhattan and take George Washington bridge. To cross Verrazano going North cost $13 bucks.
I used ink and bits of watercolor from my tiny Bijou box.
Visiting with some old friends at a cabin in Northern Michigan, I found myself with a little time to just relax and draw what was around me. One of the subjects that presented itself was a birdhouse (in truth, a squirrel house) hung on a tall, thin pine tree near the window.
