Done Before.

Paris is fabulous but I’m shattered because we’ve been walking everywhere and it’s Hot! It’s also difficult to decide what to scribble because in a city full of artists, it’s all been done before. Husb and I visited Notre Dame yesterday; it was jam packed but I found this statue in a dark, quiet corner and stood at the bottom, sketching. I like the drama of the foreshortening and the way it loomed out of the darkness.

Today we traipsed all over Montmartre and I had quite an emotional moment in front of Theo vanGogh’s house, where Vincent lived for a while. Marvellous. Tonight we went for a stroll under the full moon in the delightful Parc Bercy, which was packed with locals picnicking, playing sports and enjoying the gardens.

    You lucky gal! Have you ever ventured to the Musee Zadkine? Lots of great sculptures to draw… Enjoy your time there!

    But, Rosie, it has yet to be done with your Scribblah eye. 😉 I LOVE the perspective on this one. Bon soir!

    The perspective seems like a little kid looking up at some ancient sage at a school who’s about to give a lesson. 🙂
