Using All the Materials
These are probably my two favorite materials right now - the Pigma Graphic 1 makes this great fat line, and I also love my (pink) Lamy filled with Rohrer & Klingner Sketch Ink in Vroni. Something about pink ink makes me very happy!
Sometimes I wish I could just be happy with carrying around one or two pens. Maybe a pen and an ink brush. Then all of my sketches would look like this quick sketch I did of the little shelf next to my desk.
Two common sites in my sketches, these are watercolor and ink, and watercolor and oil-based pencil. If I only carried a pen and an ink brush, I couldn't do a watercolor of the Clark Tower on the go!
When I sketch in my studio, I may end up using something totally different, like walnut ink and a dip pen.
When I sketch at my desk, I might grab whatever is at hand, like these Pilot Petit 1 fountain pens that my husband passed along to me. They are so fun to sketch with!
At my desk again, sketching a tower of snacks - there were snacks in each box! - at a virtual work event. Again grabbing what was close by - a Stabilo marker, and the oil-based pencil out of my sketch bag.
Later that same night I attended another virtual event, this time hosted by the Dixon, and sketched with another favorite, the Mitsubishi vermilion/prussian blue pencil. I keep these pencils everywhere because they are so handy and fun to sketch with!
Sketchwork is sketches and work about sketching - teaching, making art, art supplies, books, sketchers, artists, Urban Sketchers, Memphis Urban Sketchers, and traveling.
