Tuesday's Doctor's Visit

Again, misjudging time to arrive at my doctor's appointment, I arrived 20 minutes early and chose to sit in the car rather than in the waiting room.

Looking around at a shopping center, I struggled finding something that really jumped out at me to sketch.  Finally I saw part of a house with dormers that grabbed my attention and decided to sketch that until time to go in.

Once I returned to the car, I decided to add to the page the front of the doctor's building since that was the reason I was there in the first place. 

Worked a quick sketch in the car and finished the page at home with color and pen and ink.  With this particular page, I chose to emphasize in color the doctor's office rather than the partial house (where I only suggested with a little color.)

Stillman & Birn Epsilon journal; W&N watercolors; #6 and #8 rounds; Pilot Prera with Lexington Gray on all but the doctor's sign which I used my Noodler's Flex pen with the larger nib and Lexington Gray ink.

On this paper, using the Noodler's Flex pen, I had to use a hair dryer PLUS dabbing several times with tissue to dry or remove the excess ink.  Ink didn't want to settle in the paper fibers choosing to sit on top instead.
