5 April 2018
The apartment has been without gas for over a month. I haven’t been able to cook, so an awful lot of take-out and delivery food is what has been eaten. Occasionally there’s a chance for an adventure by eating a meal at a restaurant. This afternoon I had one of those adventures, and I took my two Sailor fountain pens with me.
I didn’t want to go far, so I went to the Metro Diner a couple of blocks up and had an arugula salad with some balsamic, and a coffee.
I decided to start the exciting adventure with the medium nib in the Stillman and Birn Alpha Series 4 X 6 hardcover sketchbook, looking straight ahead to the booths in front of me.
The closest group of people left, so I did another quick sketch in the same direction with the extra fine nib in the 4 X 3 Pentalic Traveler Pocket Sketchbook.
I didn’t manage to capture the interesting way this woman was holding her fork, medium nib, S&B 4 X 6:
A woman directly in front of me looking at the menu, this was tricky because it was so difficult to be discreet while I was sketching under the table and trying not to look obvious. Extra fine nib, Pentalic 4 X 3:
Here are the pens with their respective sketches in a group shot!
The ink used is Platinum Carbon Black.
Thank you so much for visiting!
See you later!!
