|7" x 10" unnamed-brand sketchbook ink pen|
I have spent many weekend mornings sketching at Otherlands Coffee Shop while Margaret drinks her coffee. Almost every sketchbook filled over the past 15 years contains some Otherlands sketches. While scanning 25 sketchbooks last week, I noticed that several changes have occurred since I started sketching with the Urban Sketchers. First, for a long time I used the same size and type of sketchbook and drew with an ink pen.The top sketch is from 2003, the second is from 2005 then 2010, 2011 and 2012. Each sketch is from a different sketchbook.

water soluble ink & a water brush
After I started meeting with Urban Sketchers, things started to change. I found out about water brushes that allow one to blend water soluble ink. Next week, I will show Otherlands sketches from five more sketchbooks.
