Lions and Louvre
I started out painting lions again this morning. I hadn't quite captured what I'd wanted to last time. And they're fun to paint.
Then I painted the bar at St. Germaine des Pres where my friends Allison and Michel took me for a drink back on the spring.
I had grabbed the wrong sketchbook this morning and was out of the squarer paper, so it was panoramas for the rest of the day.
I painted the Louvre. Again. I can't seem to stop myself. It really is my favorite building in Paris. At least this time was a quite different viewpoint.
I was kind of pooped and very hungry by then, but I've been trying to do four sketches a day when possible. I decided to go to the creperie where I had my first Paris lunch and get a sustaining crepe, sit down a bit, and use the bathroom (really the trickiest bit about being downtown all day). Afterwards I felt refreshed enough to do one more painting along the Seine on my way home. If you look closely, you can spot the Louvre.
