Sketchbook Project 2011 Day 12

I thought I'd do something different this time around. Instead of working on a single page in one day I decided to do a spread. This was completed on Labor Day in Central Park whilst lying on the grass with Belvidere Castle in my view. It was a perfect day. Not too warm, not too cool and not too packed. Not to mention there was no traffic going into the city and free parking on the street due to the holiday. All these things made for a wonderful day out with the kids, despite a few hiccups. 

In case you are wondering I used My Sakura Pigma Sensei, and Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens, along with some watercolor for this spread. The pens have been my favorite to use so far. It's no wonder they are a favorite of Manga artists. My next purchase will be waterbrushes that I hear from Wendy Wright are amazing. I also want to give Copic Markers a try since I read Kathy Weller's post about them - I just love her progress so far! Cute cute cute! Anyhooooo...hope you are enjoying my journey. I sure am. =)
