Zeta paper is smooth compare to my usual grainy watercolor paper and support the color. I am surprised it took multiple heavy washes, wet-in-wet and transparent glazes, very strong paper.
The subject is simple, breakfast, but touched me on emotional level, its colors, smell, joy of being together at the table, promise of another day. It is all about being able to See. This purple is a "fake" bacon, which I love more and more.

- Sketching in Gamma sketchbook with new too soft Faber-Castell 2 mm pencil. Nail salon and on the way. I got new pencil, really awesome, Faber-Castell, 2 mm, with led sharpener built in, but change the led in it to F grade, because on that juicy paper of Stillman & Burn Gamma sketchbook every pencil looks brighter and softer. It comes with HB.
- I finally decide to unwind and pamper myself in one of the best nail salons, in Bay Ridge, where pedicure comes with intense massage, including massage with hot rocks, honey scrub, massage chairs, wax treatment, etc. I did quick sketch, adding touch of color with very old reddish-brownish pencil, I found in my draw forgotten.

I have no time for myself and feel sick of not drawing. But need to do what I do, because I am not free. Few strokes on drawing of old car, few sentences on Kindle of Ruth Rendell book and that's all.
