Wandering Paris

My Imaginary Trip to Paris continues. Lots of fun and laughs with a great bunch of artists and Laure Ferlita (our host). This week we are touring Versailles, and WOW! The assignment was to pick a scene and do a time sketch (the time up to us). I am striving to learn fast sketch techniques and I am happy to say I am!! I allowed 10 minutes for a quick pen only sketch of the framework and scribbles of the art within of this CEILING view (yes the ceiling is jaw dropping gorgeous). 10 minutes for paint concentrating on VALUES. then 10 or so for text 'back at our hotel'. Sorry my text scanned so faintly - need to up my pen sizes. There are more pages to post, as soon as I have time ;)

what a great time you've had in Paris....and to tackle a ceiling!!!
We went to Fontainebleau and if you can believe it~it was MORE beautiful than Versailles.
I did not sketch...don't tell Laure. Honestly there is so much activity you just have difficulty focusing...I took 4000+ photos so I'm sure I'll find something to paint! Suzanne
