I walked today on snowy roads, my car still stuck in snow.
I took the lightest bag with me because I want to draw. (sorry for the poem, it was just too funny and rhythmic).
With minimum drawing stuff, only 15 pens and pencils in my orange pencil case and brown book, hoping that today would be long waiting, so I can sketch. So here I used this interesting pencil-ruler and touch of white pen.
It was not long waiting at all but still got few sketches and headache.

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.

I missed inking in Moleskine. I used few inks here and couple of vintage Mongol Eberhard Faber watercolor pencils. Its called Paint with Pencils. First watercolor pencils, I think. I got to investigate 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.
Here is Marika, she speaks Hungarian and she is very sweet person. She works in the house where I touched up mural recently. She made me nice coffee and brought this wonderful cake. I mention in the other post that while working downstairs she was singing opera arias, it was pretty amazing. And about this cake, it may not look that special, but the taste was mind blowing, some tiny pieces of nuts and thin layer of coffee cream, and topped with coconut. I used ink in Moleskine.
