Happy sketching today
Today is not a sketching but is Happy sketching day!
We went this morning to the doctor for a visit that we were waiting for since some time.
It’s mainly a visit that show the morphologic status of the baby, so everything went sound and safe. But she was waiting for the sex of the baby growing inside the belly and… tadaaaaaaaaaaa! It’s a baby male!
And we are very happy!
So I sketched this on my dear journal, sketching straight from the pictures taken from the visit with the magic sonar.
I used the Rotring Art Pen filled with Noodler’s Black, the Pentel Brush Pen, and most of all the Stabilo Woody Pencil that is something new that I love a lot.
Here is written in italian that “finally we know that in our life there will be a cute baby boy. Mum and dad are very happy”.
Then later I had a session of three hours at the dentist but this is not worth to mention so much…
But I had also some time for sketching something else. I was alone in the balcony enjoying the fresh air, and after three hours of continuous phoning to all parents, relatives, friends and colleagues, the wind was chilling my brain and my ears. And finally is not that hot. So I was captured by a very common image in any family, that I love really a lot: clothes drying.
I did this sketching very quickly going into ink straight without thinking. I sketched also looking at the ink not so often, trying to make as right brain training. And it’s not my best but I’m pleased of the results overall. Sorry for the crappy picture but I felt relaxed only about the sunset and so I started sketching this.
I used my lovely Lamy Safari and my Winsor & Newton Watercolors over the SeaWhite of Brighton sketch pad.
