I took a trip downtown today to pick up art supplies for the watercolor class that I am starting tomorrow.
Ah! I’d forgotten the joys of drawing on a crowded lightrail car and trying to anticipate the sway and bumps and sudden stops and starts.
I had my new Mead Day Runner (reviewed earlier today) and managed to get two zentangles done.
This one is done with a Pilot B2P recycled bottle pen. The background was done with Letraset Promarker over gesso.
The B2P handled quite well on the gesso, drying fairly quickly. It did skip a bit, and I could only get one thickness of line. That’s pretty par for course with a ball point, though.
The drawing I did on the way home was done with a Pentel Energel Ink Pen over Daniel Smith Interference colors. The ink took quite some time to dry, so I decided to smudge. The scan doesn’t do it justice, because that ink just glommed onto the interference colors and this page shines!
