VSW: San Francisco, 1


It has been awhile since I sketched regularly…
Taking a class and sketching thumbnails just isn’t the same!
I have a couple days off here and NO family obligations and so,
sketching and noshing with my sweetie…
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate!

I bought the loveliest pen, a vintage Pelikan P20 Twist Fountain Pen…
I bought it because it has a palm and parrot on it — I HAD TO —
but dang, it is a sweet smooth nib and I love it.
It has a black Pelikan cartridge in it and I am using that up for now and enjoying it!

Palace of the Fine Arts by the amazing Bernard Maybeck,
built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition in San Francisco.

A touch of Robert Oster Blue Sea on a waterbrush.
