Six corners

The same busy corner of a kitchen work-top, sketched on six different evenings, in fountain-pen, brush-pen and pencil. It could probably make a very dull time-lapse; sauce, wine and oil bottles slowly moving around the pepper grinder!

    The first is my favourite, but you know I’m a sucker for lines (especially fountain pens’). The pencil sketch is also a close attender for me (but I must admit, I’m on a warpath with pencils). It’s so sweet to see a British socket (amer.: outlet ?). You can’t imagine how foreign they look to me after all these years.

    Yes, the pen has a clarity I’d love to achieve with the brushes. Equally the brushes have an expressive line that the pen can’t touch… Maybe a finer brush? And pencil is somehow perfect, but not, mainly as it rubs away and smudges; permanent pencil would be good, I looked into ‘silverpoint’ for a while as a possibility but you have prepare the paper. Hmmm. The search continues… And I love the way you spotted an oblique glimpse of a socket in the corner of a sketch, early childhood memories go deep!
