Subway sketches.

Yesterday's trip to the City was highlighted by sketching people with Palomino Blackwing 602 on a Subway and wandering in the New York Central art supply store. I should do it more often, sketch people, it trains the eye and make coordination between brain and hand better.
I got myself Stillman and Burn sketchbook, Gamma series, with a bit thick and ivory paper, hope it would be good for ink, and few watercolor papers. Now I would be more serious and mark which one I used, so I will know what to get next time.  It is all about union of paper and ink, makes a big difference.

Thank you very much Joan, I love to sketch with that pencil, Palomino Blackwing 602. I think it is the best pencil ever, it draws by itself and I run after it. :-)
