Pompidou Pigeons

Husb and I spent the whole day at the Pompidou Centre. What an amazing place. We sat awhile on one of the roof terraces, looking at the views over the rooftops and I had a bit of a scribble. I wanted to draw the pigeons but the statues and the building sort of took over. There is a shallow pond on the roof and the pigeons share it with the statues.

Drawn into my cloth bound sketchbook with Faber Castell Pitt Drawing pens and a touch of water colour. I prepared the sketchbook first by sticking in some brown parcel paper with a Pritt stick.

    I would love to see you working with some lovely hand made papers instead of the brown paper. Gosh am I becoming middle-class πŸ˜‰

      haha I have handmade papers but I find them inhibiting beause they’re expensive and I don’t want to ruin them. Working onto brown wrapping paper means I’m not bothered if I waste it.

        You are never wasting if you are creating πŸ™‚

    Just imaging the statues having a splash around when no-one is looking and then freezing when somebody comes. Did you ever play Statues when you were at school?
