Lamy Safari fountain pen and watercolor in Strathmore w/c sketchbook 5 X 7″
We finally replaced our old stove, which could only be lit with a match, and installed a new exhaust fan. It became an opportunity for a sketch of the “everyday matters” variety. I’m having some trouble with my fountain pen lines, which are sometimes too fine. I go over them and then the drawing looks insecure.
My insecurity is showing here as well. Sketched from up above on the balcony, it was a great angle though. My son and husband and I were there for coffee. They did stuff on their computers while I sketched and texted pictures to my other son who wasn’t with us. We fit right into coffee shop/internet cafe ambiance.
Another day, this baby was on his father’s lap, one seat away from me at the coffee bar. The father said nothing as I brazenly scribbled and flirted with his son.
