Nothing good today

Nothing good today I was not able to sketch nothing that good in my opinion.

I had also really not a good chance to do it, indeed. I was just arrived to the pavillion, and after a relaxing call with my wife I started pulling out all my minimal equipment.

I also decided to go for Fude pen, just to sketch per outlines even quicker.

Nope, today probably because it’s Monday I don’t felt the magic powder going through my pencil nor pen nor water brush.

And it’s a pity becasue I had in fornt of me interesting subject. I mean no way… to day no buono.

As I think in these (sad) moments to me: at least I was there and at the very least I sketched something.


A Very Warm Day a Quick Sketch

A Very Warm Day a Quick Sketch

Today is a crazy day speaking about weather.
The air is crazy hot and with humidity like the Victoria Lake. Almost I can’t breath. The colors are strange as the light is full of sand dust. Everything seems under a strange old style filter like the ones I use on the Iphone apps.

It’s really something incredible. Thermometric sticks to only 33C but the humidity is so high that I’m drinking not breathing. I feel very very hot, I can stay outside for few minutes.
I see even people playing in the basket playground near to me. Crazy people that stopped only after three minutes of first game: the hot shot given from the sky can be really harmful.

But I have some goals that keeps me to dare this hot weather and go out for a sketching


A thug one of the bigger ones was crossing the sea in front of me at the pavilion.
Sniped. In less than 10 minutes I washed these pages with watercolors and previously I dropped some loose outlines. I can’t dare that this is a proper sketch, whatever, I won at the end.


Well at least the sketching dries quicker.

About this challenge I will catch this chance as an excuse to use a new Stillman&Birn Sketchbook and this is another good point. Undecided if using a heavier S&B and which format but at least I will use it for sure!

So let’s do it!

I will be there on Instagram as @Mostho and on Twitter @SketchingMostho
