I've been having the best week ever---not because everything I'm trying to do is working, but because I finally have the time to paint and draw in a sustained way! Plus, I did a 4-plus mile power walk yesterday! I'm banned from the gym by my doctor until March, so walking will have to suffice as my way to stay sane-ish and non-corpulent. I went uphill and down, pumping arms, and breathing frosty breaths for over an hour last night!
The bar scene was done with Pitt Big Brush Pens, which I love! I took some with me to Bruges last month. Click back to see the hotel bar/library sketch and the carved figures sketch posted in January, if you like---they're also done with these pens. Certain pens, pencils, brushes really affect one's style and these pens are a case in point. About the second sketch: Tom Robinson' Seafood is a wonderful local establishment. I'm going tomorrow to sketch the interior and the fishmonger! I should have some water paintings to show you before very long, too, so there'll be lots to see, the good Lord willing and the creek not rising!
