Sketches from Paris



It´s been a few weeks now since we came home from Paris, but I thought I´d post a page I made there in my sketchbook. It´s the first time I´ve been sitting in a pavement café in the beginning of March, drawing. Sweden is usually still in winter in March...

Amazing architectural drawings! I love the way that you have used the simple green wash to colour the sketch. I have learnt a lot from this example, thank you.

Cheers,

Nina: Loved Paris...that's one place I've always wanted to see. I liked your nose, too...sorry it's stuffy, runny, etc. Spring is beautiful even through the suffering. Huh! Thanks for sharing your art.
