Sketching the Old and the New
I've been working a lot in Palermo the last few weeks and I grabbed the opportunity for some quick sketches. These are 10 - 15 minute sketches from my car with a Pitt pen.
This is just the corner of one of the main old gates into the city, the front is so ornate I'd need at least an hour to draw it and my breaks aren't long enough. Under this gate roars the city traffic, it's a wonder it stays up.
I'm not very fond of big cities, but I admit that I could be tempted to go there just to draw, there's enough there to keep me going for years!
