Emerald Isle Bookends

So i'm bookending my trip in images. The first is the sunset as seen from above the clouds in the plane ride over there.

The second is the day of my birthday sitting outside enjoy some sun and sketching what i see.

I did some really great sketches while over there. Maybe not super detailed, but enjoyable to do, see, and show. I met really great artist also and had an over all good time.

Tomorrow images drawn quickly from Trinity college and the Book of Kells. Enjoy as always.

Thanks guys. I've been working more with pen so that i don't feel the "safety" of pencils' ability to erase. But i've also been allowing myself the freedom to sketch anything i see, no matter how boring or mundane. I think that is letting me draw better. I'm glad it's showing!
