Sketchbook Journeys - Italy: Day 9 (Pigeons in Venice)

Can you imagine Venice without pigeons? They're such a part of the city that I felt they deserved a page in my travel journal...


These four are making the loveliest shadows as they perch on a lamp support on the clock tower in the Piazza San Marco...


And this group has found something worth investigating...


The purple lettering on the page was done with a metallic gel pen...


I just recently discovered Sakura Gelly Roll gel pens and have found they're great for adding titles and text to a sketchbook page. The ink flows smoothly on any paper and they come in a nice selection of colors.

 

I used a line of dots to connect the two sketches and add a decorative element to the page. Spattered paint suggests the texture of the stone pavers and/or pigeon food.

There you have it - a pretty pink and purple pigeon page!
