I got to Paris yesterday feeling good enough to take a walk and do some light sketching. I headed to Abbesses, not too far and one of my favorite spots, and wandered over to Sacre Coeur. I emphatically did not climb up the whole hill. Instead I sat in the sun and sketched a bit.
On the way home I sketched the public water fountain in Abbesses. You see these all over Paris, and they are not only gorgeous but sometimes very welcome for refilling one's water bottle.
