Next day I decide to paint the other side of the lake with watercolor on the other side of my sketch in Delta sketchbook by Stillman & Birn. Nothing bled through, amazing quality sketchbook. Too many people decide to pass by, I didn't care, main concern was for Piglet not to bite anyone or be eaten by bigger dog. He didn't stop barking, so I could not concentrate on my sketch and was consumed by the sun.

I know I shouldn't allow myself to fool around with great sketchbook, Delta, hardbound, but couldn't resist to scribble on the way.
I drew on each side of the page, nothing bled through, even layered washes on the other side.

It is amazing for sketching, which I did many times from the car and private piers. This time it is a view from the side of Siam restaurant ( I didn't like their famous soup, but liked salad with caramelized shrimps). I used ink and touch of Kuretake Twins on Winsor & Newton wonderful paper.

Paper is so good, that I can draw on both sides with multiple washes and nothing comes through.
Delta is so pretty with ivory color paper, my favorite french ink would look so good on it. And Beta is white and thick, color would be singing. On Beta printed charming drawing by Jan Blencowe in mixed media: watercolor, ink and gouache. Blue bottle playing with framing blues at the edges of sleeve, stunning combination.
On Delta play of greens and colorful watercolor of fish by Jeanne Forsyth. I think it is a great idea to put artist's work on the sketchbook sleeve. Inspiring. On public I like to remove it, leaving the sketchbook black and less noticeable. This sketchbooks just perfect.

link to my previous post a year ago, when I got this pencil and did research on it. It is really useful for smokers for pipe and cigars. For me it is another travel in time.

I used ink and a little bit of Kuretake on wonderful paper I got in "Dick Blick" on one rainy day in Manhattan, when I decide to spoil myself. Ink loving this paper. I wrote "Almond milk" in Japanese.
