ink pens and drawing

It was my birthday yesterday, and this is what I wanted,.. a new set of rapidograph pens!! I used to have a set many many years ago.. and always wanted to have them back.  Little fine line markers are just not the same :-)     It was so hot today, I couldn't believe it! Over 90! That is very unusual for here in Rochester.
I stopped to draw my little supper,  didn't feel like eating much on such a hot day... didn't feel like doing much of anything!
Toast, and hard boiled egg...( I already ate the other half of the egg)

Day 21 of 75....

 Here are just a couple of drawings I've done in the past few days.  The rose was drawn from a picture I took earlier in June, and the hydrangeas I drew while sitting in my backyard at the table. I haven't drawn anything for today... so as soon as I finish this post, that's what I'll be doing!  Thanks for stopping by for a look :)

75 Day...(ink) sketch a day continued....

utensils from my kitchen drawer

drove down to the Port of Rochester to draw.  I ran out of room on my page, but drew enough to realize I need practice drawing buildings!  .. and cars.

Can't remember ever drawing a motorcycle... need practice doing this too!
I'm at day 13 now, not all my sketches have been posted, but doing a drawing or 2 every day.  Only 62 days to go!!  :-)

More Ink drawings....

Rain, rain, rain... what a gloomy day, but one way to brighten my mood is to buy something new to draw or paint.   Here are days 9 and 10 of my ink sketches, a couple of little "succulent" plants, and a couple of figs.  Both are firsts for me to draw, and doing it in ink was good change for my brain.
