I had a great time painting statues at the Luxembourg gardens, and I continued around the Louvre and in the Tuileries.
I've realized that I also have barely painted the Eiffel Tower, which most people think if first when they think of Paris. So I managed both a statue and the Eiffel Tower.
The skies have also been wonderful. The sky plus this statue on a corner of the roof of the Louvre caught my eye. I love this statue. My first sketch in Paris was of it. I just keep coming back.
While I was painting the angel, this lion caught my eye as well. There's such a wealth of things to paint in Paris that I could plop down almost anywhere and be occupied all day.
And then there's this one of the canal. I did it a few days ago when I was too busy to get a blog post up, so here it is. I had walked to a different quadrant if the city to meet a new friend for lunch, and I was glad to get out of my Louvre groove and see a little more of Paris.
