Red car.

This little red car grabbed my attention on one of the streets in Brooklyn. May be this happy red, may be pretty boring background, may be my thirst for textures, may be all of that contributed to completing this ink drawing despite the horrible heat, at list 104 F in the shadow, with my AC broken. And my fingers and furniture stained by this bloody red. And paper didn't cooperate, Arches Rough Torchon, sand off my brushes. I used ink and Kuretake and few drops of Liquitex paint.

Few sketches.

Took a Subway once in a long time, really surprised me how many beautiful people around. Didn't get to sketch much. Used Gamma sketchbook by Stillman and Birn and my vintage green mechanical pencil.

Dissolved in the rain. Snapped on my phone.

This unfinished breakfast with cherries was sitting on my table for a while till it felt right to share thoughts and feelings about my daughter's trip to Israel. Little strips of paper with dates and plans like the ones what people use for prays and wishes, they folding and place between stones of the Western Wall. It is a centuries-old tradition. I sent mine too.
I used ink and Inktense pencils, but finished up with few Kuretake brush pens.

I love Internet.

I love Internet. While folding laundry (with Fellini's help), watching on Ipad my daughter's airplane, flying above Europe.

Tennis photos.

I was allowed to come to see tennis play, took some photos, sketched a little.
Loved every moment of it. Will post sketches later.

Morning sun in the kitchen.

Early morning.

I don't have time or decision about how to finish a small drawing with cherries, so took a camera to appreciate the beauty of the day.

Sun is coming into the kitchen. Here Chuck who doesn't let us sleep, he is 17 and a half and his favorite thing is eating and screaming like an elephant, preferably during the night.

I added color and sharpen up some tonal values. I used ink and Kuretake on Fabriano Artistico.
This British pub located in Park Slope, in Brooklyn, with walls decorated in royal, Beetles and punk rock of 80's memorabilia, with HP sauce on the shelves, with authentic english food was pretty interesting. And Haddock fish was delicious. So it was fun to eat, drink beer and sketch.

British pub in a process.

British pub in a process. What else to do in such dark rainy evening?
