On the way to Manhattan, people, legs, shoes, books.
I sketched in Rockefeller Plaza, people were eating and chatting and no one paid attention to me. I tried different pencils: Ebony, Blackwing, Blackwing 602, Pitt oil.
Somehow pencils didn't feel right, too thick, too muddy.
Finaly Blackwing 602 felt the most comfortable on this dry paper, but then it was time to leave. Little white accents added extra dimension. I felt bad to fill out Stillman&Birn with momentarily people sketches, but this brown book is ok for it.
