Pen & ink, Sketches May 11, 2018

I have been getting out to sketch, squeezing time in between projects that I have been working on. There has bee some events and activity in Patchogue so these sketches are a sampling of what I have done recently.

The Heron was an exercise from Sketchbook Survival where we used a brush instead of a pen to sketch out the heron and I will be trying this technique more often, when I am out sketching.

Enjoy!

Day 20 #30Pages30Days Today we went to Denny’s for breakfast. It’s my father-in-law’s 89th birthday and he wanted to celebrate with his friends, and get his free breakfast, lol.

This sketchbook is the #Leichtturm1917 I used my Uniball pen and Peerless watercolors. The Leuchtturm1917 is not wet work friendly but I have been making it work.

The temperature is finally in the low ’80’s, it’s the weekend and there is no wind so everyone seems to be going to the beach today. I love Florida, up North everyone is still celebrating St Patty’s Day (it appears to be a month long celebration on Long Island, another reason to abandon ship in March) in Florida, people head outdoors. Gotta Love Florida!

There was this awesome truck on the beach that I had to sketch. I was trying a few things out here, a new sketchbook, a Leuchtturm1917, my watercolor pencils and watercolor and how different media performs in the Leuchtturm1917. This is the first sketch in the Leuchtturm1917, which was given out at the Urban Sketcher Symposium in Chicago. I like the pink cover😎.
