I’m a little bit in love with my two brush pens filled with sumi ink of two different strengths. I went to Luxembourg Gardens the other night to sketch people lying on the lawn after dinner. One thing I love about Paris is how everyone floods out into public spaces together instead of staying hermetically sealed up in their own homes and cars. There’s always a party on the sidewalk and in the parks.
I hung out and sketched a while, and I also did another self portrait, moving back to watercolor to keep in practice after my figure sessions earlier in the summer.
