Pen & Ink

A fun way to enjoy your travels and to bring back fond memories, that you will cherish, is to take along a few permanent black ink pens, a multi-media pad of sketch paper, and a small watercolor set w/ brush.
Sit back at a lovely outside table at a French or Greek cafe and sketch the view.  Be aware that you will, no doubt, draw a crowd of people to view your art and probably get into a conversation -- maybe you might gain a friend or two.  You may even be offered 
a free drink by the manager because you are attracting customers to the cafe.

Below are a few sketches that only took a short time to complete.  
Because the ink dries rather quickly, it is fun to add a little bit of color to remember a great time.

The sketches below do not have titles but they bring back wonderful memories.

Only a few people are up if you sketch early.
