Anyway, back to sketching, the pen turned out to be a chiseled point pen. About an eighth of an inch across, you can see one of the marks by the hand. Anyway, something different for sketching with. The doodle or zentangle was done with the Sharpie liquid pencil. That is different to use. I don't get excited about drawing with a pencil of any kind. Don't know why, maybe because it may not be dark enough and needs to be restated. I like putting a mark down once!
I sketched in the large sketchbook and filled the page. It took about thirty minutes for the sketches, excluding the doodle done on a different day to try the pencil. I hadn't seen it in my pencil cup for a while. Ha.
Number 3, makes a permanent mark - Sharpie permanent marker
Number 4, holds a liquid - cup/mug
Number 5, chiseled - the nib of the pen I was using
Number 6, earth - a mole or gopher hill in the yard. They come and go and we never get rid of them!
Friends from Georgia arrive tomorrow. We met them in Peru many years ago and have stayed in touch. It is always good to see them. Great memories return when we visit.
It is balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque. Lots of fun memories there, too. Jennie and I are in the painting below on a beautiful October morning in Albuquerque a few years ago.
