On the way to work - A bridge
On the way to work - Speaking mainly of a bridge over a way that I pass every single day. It’s my connection for the rest of the world, believe it or not.
And I like it, I like it so much. Why exactly I don’t know. But I suppose to love this way because it changes suddenly and very often on my eyes.
It rains on November? The Bridge is flooded. Look at that earthy tone on the right, the day after are green covered in many grasses and yellow flowers.
And what about that tree on the left? Well just few days after is starting to become more green and full of leaves.
Yes, sometimes we love something that catches our attention for unknown reasons. Do you happen to you also?
Other strange facts is that I sketched this bridge based on a bad picture taken while I was on my scooter. It is clearly seen because I’m on the street. I think this is another way to take a visual note, when something flashes in your mind and you cannot sketch live for several reasons!
I sketched this two pages of my Stillman and Birn Beta completely in half an hour, slowly like I like to do when I have some time. I started to draw the outlines with my Lamy Safari filled with Platinum Carbon. Slight return of my faithful workhorse. Then I went with the washes and I used my Winsor&Newton Artists’ watercolors. And because I was at home I sketched used this time the best brushes I have. Strange they are in a travel format but. Well they are the Escoda Reserva Sable Travel Set. They are fantastic and I can only say that they really improved my washing. And coming from daily use of waterbrushes is not easy.
