Sketch for Hunt 473

This morning I sketched in the huge sketchbook with a Micron 05 and some Pentel colored pens.  They have great color but bleed through the page in the sketchbook unless I have a very light touch.  We will see how it goes.  They look good.

For Scavenger Hunt 473  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1415812
Number 6, something above you - the star mobile and the flag on the wall above the door.
Number 7, something below you - the table leg, rug and tile
Number 8, colorful - kitchen tools

We had a quiet Veterans Day.  The ceremony, parade and car show is downtown Bastrop tomorrow.  We may go.  The weather has been lovely.

the pens do create nice colour, shame the paper isn't up to using them a lot

huge sketchbook still huge? noticed you have been using it a lot lately

Jennifer, I do like the color on the pens, just not able to really blend. Guess cross hatching might be a way to blend the edges.
The sketchbook seems to grow. Ha. I didn't use it all summer. Too big to carry around for 10,000 miles, so trying to catch up a little. I might have to sketch from photos so it won't have so many duplicate items.

Such bright colors. Wow.

Joanna, they are bright. Have to figure out how to use them more. I seem to lack patience. Heh, heh.
