October 29 Diary post, Tiffany glass and the Met
A new experience- Salted Duck eggs- they're boiled and preserved, wrapped prettily in red. Gah! Even too salty for me. I don't think they're meant to be eaten alone. Perhaps chopped in with something.
Back in the Studio- Testing out my Derwent Inktense pencils. This is a watercolor pencil on steroids. They grip the page and while that's nice for texture, feathers, and fur effects, I prefer something that goes on smooth like cream. When it comes to getting them wet, they really stand out. There's plenty of rich, bright pigment. They're not at all wimpy like most watercolor pencils.
