Basic Kit

Managed a spread, despite my head feeling like it's caving in!
It's my sinuses giving me pain now a family ailment that I'm sure my drugs are now working on...I can feel improvement, slowly but surely.

Decided to sketch some of my journal kit, besides my hands (obviously, LOL!), a cheap synthetic brush and a Lamy filled with Noodlers ink, I have a palette, a rag and a water bottle. This is always in my handbag and my handbag usually joins me in the lounge and I sketch with this kit while at home too!
Pen, brush, paint, rag and water...just 5 items and, of course, my current journal.
I have 5 Lamys, each filled with a different colour Noodlers ink, but the one I've been using recently is the Pink one filled with Bulletproof Black ink.

Anita,

It took me awhile to figure out why your lettering is always vertically written. You turn the journal to do the lettering even though you may have done the drawings with the journal in the normal position. Just an observation. Doing any drawing is tough to do when you don't feel good.

So glad you feel well enough to sketch. Which Colors of Noodlers do you have in your pens? I know you use Noodlers Lexington gray, and Bullet Proof Black.
Do you purchase the Black Nibs for your Lamys?
I have two Japanese Foutain Pens with Noodlers Inks, I have V- Mail Colors- and the Atomic black is in my Charcoal Gray Lamy pen and my Coffee Brown Lamy has Lexington Gray.
I just adore the hand sketch.
Take extra care of yourself with the Sinus infection. Take those meds and take all of them. Please go back to the doctor after taking all the Meds. Some people here are having a hard time getting over the sinus Virus.
