Sketches in Delta book (Stillman&Birn).

I packed Bijou watercolor box and this new little (6"x8") Stillman&Birn Delta series sketchbook on my short trip Upstate. Paper is 180 lb with rough surface. I used watercolor and accented with Uranus pen, double ended. I like that paper takes water so nicely, strong and durable, takes eraser and rubbing with the brush. I like ivory color of the paper, it adds to the vintage feeling, sort of little nostalgic theme. So here my shaved dog and I curled up on the couch looking at flames. ( We shaved Yorkie and surprisingly she looks like absentminded kangaroo or that funny character from Ice Age cartoon, I think named Layla Zee or Sid).
Here another sketch. Stream.

Both sketches are fabulous, Nikira. I love anything that looks like an earlier era; it brings those days to life. The landscape is absolute exquisite.

Thank you very much CrimsonLeaves! I think also because color of the paper is ivory it adds to the feeling of nostalgic about past. :-)
