Last night I worked only in my sketchbooks using pencil or fountain pen, sometimes coloring with Peerless Watercolor Papers and a waterbrush.  The venue (Black and Blue in Easton, PA)

is difficult.  The only view of the musicians is from the four, small, round tables next to the bar.  I would rather share the tiny table with my friends than hog the surface for my paints.

My favorite of the night is a toss up between the brief ink sketch of Billy and George, a subdued portrait of Joe Mac and a pencil drawing of Todd Lanka with two strokes of watercolor.
