Little sketches while waiting for legal parking.

I tried Golden Brown sample ink on Delta sketchbook by Stillman&Birn. When washed makes very yellow tones, in puddles breaks in more 3D, more colors, like here on the left. It is almost reddish on the sides of the puddle. The good thing it staying liquid, not creating slime like J.Herbin, but it is still lucking richness of color spectrum.

McDonald's drive thru.  Dark corner with train on the top. I used watercolor and Uranus pen in Stillman&Birn Delta sketchbook.
I drew it on the back of the other sketch, somehow it makes me feel better, that I am using sketchbook more efficiently. 

Despite yellow washes being too yellow I am getting more and more attracted to this Noodler's ink, it gave 2 reddish rims, it keeps smooth and consistent and I am heaving a wild idea of  may be mixing couple of Noodler's for further experiments.

Gosh, I don't which of these sketches I like more! I love the way there is settling of that yellow into more orange shades in the darker areas. I also love McDonalds and all the detail and color of that sketch is fabulous! The third is so bucolic, my kind of place. As always, truly wonderful work, Nikira.
