Studio in my pocket
These days fine art in
my life consists solely of sketching. However, I never
actually go out sketching; I incorporate it into my
daily routine, keeping a sketchbook in my pocket as
I travel on the subway. Occasionally I will sketch
in the park on my lunch hour. My materials are a Strathmore
3.5" X 5" Premium Recycled sketchbook, an Esterbrook
SJ fountain pen with 9128 flexible extra fine nib
filled with brown ink, and a special brush pen filled
with brown ink wash. I also use an Esterbrook LJ fountain
pen filled with black carbon ink along with brush
pen filled with black ink wash.
These sketches were all
done on the spot, most of them finished within one
or two minutes on a moving train.
