Cafe Wednesday 8 October

Two drawings today. The first is my favourite cafe subject, a furled umbrella, drawn using my new Copic 0.5 marker. This has waterproof pigment ink and I have a refill for it which I hope will last the length of my holiday (or perhaps I should just go and buy a second refill).

I love following the folds of a furled umbrella! Copic marker, 8 October 2014

The second is my glass of water and it’s reflections where I used both my Copic marker and my Lamy Safari, whose ink is not waterproof. I wanted to try the combination and I’m pleased with the way I could use the ink to blend and bleed for the darker areas.

Here’s a bonus drawing, from coffee with friends last Sunday.
