Along the City Wall
Some more lunch break sketches from Palermo's seafront area. Here's a rear view of the 'Porta dei Greci', an old gateway set within the city walls. I liked the sparkling view of the sea from this side, even if the front is far more ornate.
This is the top of a beautiful pillar, one of two that seem to have once been an entrance way.
I've been using some very cheap Stabilo point 88 pens. They have a quality that I like (or defect depending on your point of view!) If you add water the ink melts into a watery effect.
There are 25 colours to choose from, some are very bright, but I bought brown, grey and black to play with, but I find the purple very tempting!
