At The Park

I drew this sketch at the beginning of this month.I went to pick up my daughter from school with the intention to take her for a walk as the fall day was wonderful,warm and bright.We could not go farther than the school park which was bursting with kids and parents enjoying the beautiful weather.When my little one went to play with the other kids I noticed this girl reading her book bathed by the bright afternoon sunshine and did a quick sketch of her.I used an ink pen Millennium to do the sketch and later at home I finished it with watercolor pencils and a water brush.

Sketches from Bulgaria

I am back from my trip to Bulgaria.I had wonderful time with my family and friends.I even had a little bit time to sketch.It usually happened when I was relaxing at the parks waiting for my daughter to play on the swings and slides.I took tons of pictures which I intend to use for references for my future paintings.
We did not have much luck with the weather,though.After the first three hot days it became cold even colder than in Minnesota.The temps dropped from the nineties to the sixties with wind and rain.My plans to take my daughter to the seaside failed.I was disappointed too because I hoped I would take beautiful pictures of seascapes,boats and old Bulgarian architecture which make a wonderful subject matter for paintings.
Here you can find three of my sketches done with ink in my sketchbook.The brand of the pen is Millennium,made in Japan.I have tried different ink pens and this one is my best choice so far,fine nib and no bleeding when washes applied.
