Sunrise and sketch with "perfect" pencil.


video
Beautiful morning.

This freezing weather keeps me mostly indoors, but sometimes I can't keep my pencil still. On one occasion I spoiled myself with sushi, my favorites, with eel, and drew a guy, while waiting for the order, and at home. Would be so nice to go to eat with someone, very patient friend, and sketch there, for longer...

Lovely sketches Nik, I have been enjoying your work. Mike and I had sushi last night, take out order. He is from Brooklyn, many years ago his family moved to Long Island. He talks of Brooklyn with very fond memories. He is actually one of the teenagers on the truck blowing a horn when the Brooklyn Dodgers won the series. So sorry for the chatty comment. Stay warm.

All the best to you,
Joan

Thank you very much, Joan, for your interesting comment. I am a fan of your beautiful paintings, you know, love your palette. Brooklyn, agree, interesting place, with personality and diverse cultures, so many interesting aspects of life - wonderful for the artist's eye. Sushi is my favorite! Say hello to Mike and your beautiful talented son. :)

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves! I feel bad that from my big collection of pencils I am using so little, so for now I stick to Faber-Castell "perfect pencil" and it works well on this toned paper. :)
