©2015 Carolyn A Pappas, Howth. Faber Castell PITT Pens in large moleskine.

These days I am not much of a traveling person, but I know some travelers and made this sketch from someone’s photo after a recent trip to Ireland. I used my Faber Castell PITT pens in assorted colors with the standard size S tips and the brush tips. My goal was to impart a feeling of texture which I think I achieved. In the past, I have traveled with companions who were much too fast paced for me, which took the enjoyment out of it. When I am able to travel again I am going to go strictly for painting, sketching and fine dining, not shopping or bus tours.
