Simo Capecchi's sketching gear

Lately I like the Bic Cristal, the old biro we used at school, gray and soft enough to substitute my pencil. With Payne's gray it makes a perfect combination for me (similar bic + one color drawings, here and here).

I do make the effort of using colors sometimes, but you can tell which are my favourite... (this drawing here). I'm scared of brilliant colors and of thick black lines.

Here is the entire content of my sketching bag, an old military waterproof one that I have been using for years.
Together with Pentel waterbrush and a flat brush, I use a waterproof Uniball Signo 0.38, a sharpener, B6 pencils (mostly for drawing persons) and a pills container for water. Watercolors tablets are Windsor & Newton, AA serie.

I'll leave in 10 days for San Francisco and maybe my grays will be good enough for the city fog. Thanks to all the participants who are sharing their drawings here,
see you all in Portland!
