I was recently in Paris for two weeks and made a lot of time to draw.
Some of my favorites:
Along the Canal St Martin
Out the window of a bistro in Montmartre
The historic yet unassuming Lapin Agile in Montmartre
Steps near Sacre Coeur. There are tons of steps to get up and down from Montmartre.
Sketches and painting of a window. The architecture is lovely and picturesque but surprisingly complicated to draw. Mostly I needed preparation to deal with the perspective due to looking from the ground, and a variety of grey-yellows to model the details with any depth.
Aperol spritz! With record high temperatures, these were a big feature during the trip.
Tiny sketch from a picnic when I learned to combine Schweppes Agrum’ soda (mixed citrus) with red wine for a sort of super-simple sangria
Canal boat navigating the locks on Canal St Martin
Window in the Latin Quarter
Doughnut peaches for breakfast
Rooftops drawn while taking a break from the heat
The cluttered interior of a lovely cafe where I had a little longer to draw
