Montmartre



In 2003 I spent a long weekend in Paris for my birthday, my first.

I also began my art adventure in 2003 and, since it was all new to me, I did not think to take a sketchbook or very many photographs...Boy do I regret that now!

I loved Monmartre and could have easily passed away many hours sat outside one of the cafes watching the artists at work...coffee and art, who could wish for more than that?

I sketched this from one of the few photos I did manage to take and, after making a few alterations in my head, am currently working it up onto canvas using acrylic interactives...More on this one soon.

Ahm I'm so envious! I would love to see Paris. Been a huge dream since I was a little girl. I love your sketch. Can't wait to see how the painting progresses.

This is a wonderful sketch Anita - the faces are full of expression and your triangular composition is inspired. It's going to make a really good painting.

I love this idea...so many neat trips were taken in my past with a camera in hand but not even a thought of a sketchbook in my brain. I may have to give this idea a go...:)

Can't wait to see how your project develops...:)
