If it’s Thursday, it must be a Museum of Flight sketch.  This seems to be the quiet season.  There were only a few visitors to the Space Gallery today.  Again I had time to do a sketch.  I’m running out of things to sketch from my post at the front of the gallery, near the door.

This is the view out the front window, through the supporting structure, across the street to the odd shaped building that is the Personal Courage Wing.  That wing houses the two floors of WWI and WWII aircraft and artifacts.

Done in a Moleskine pocket sketchbook with Uniball Vision needle pen and two PITT artist pens.  When I got home I added very light washes, as the sketchbook paper does not like anything wet!

    How do you like using Pitt markers in the Moleskine? I love using markers of all kinds on that paper… It’s the only thing that keeps me from throwing the whole book away (because of the wash issue).

      They are OK and do work better on this paper than the diluted ink in a water brush. I don’t like them as I find it hard to do shading. As soon as I fill this book, I’m only going to work in the pocket watercolor book so I can also use the ink washes.
