Book #29 - beginning with tea :)

Lamy Safari pen with waterproof black ink from Calli. Watercolor over it - while sipping my tea and after :)

It was an end of a long day, I did not have a new sketchbook and or time to bind a nice one - so I took a stack of watercolor paper, stopped by Kinko's and got it cut in half and wire-bound - which took much less out of my pocket than a moleskine I wanted to do next :)
I did a couple of self-portraits and then placed this little story of my evening done on separate pieces of paper. And that's the beginning of my sketchbook #29 (today it's already on the shelf and I am working in book #30 - coming pretty soon :)

thanks :) You'd have loved the taste too I think - it was strong, lemony, with a bit of sugar and very hot ;)

Wanna cuppa?

John, thanks!
