Brush pen, ink fineliner and hard pastels. This guy was watching me sketch with some intensity so I asked him if he painted. Not only did he paint, he carried round with him a tin of pastels just like mine. We laid them both out on the table so I could photograph them. Fantastic. I can't remember his name but I know he is an architect. I hope you are seeing this.
