Sketchbook from Trip

Just to show that I haven't been a complete slacker, here's some of the quick sketches from my trip. I didn't bring my paints (God, I brought TEN pair of shoes - hey, I have bad feet!) because it would have been too much to lug! Anyway, here's the view from our B&B in Fronsac. The actual 'chateau' we stayed at...

The road to the next chateau/vineyard....


And now we're in Paris.. 1/3 of the Arc de Triumph



Eiffel Tower... THAT I can spell...





This was from sketchbook #2.... all France. I also sketched in Spain, but mostly goofy stuff. Dogs, people eating, etc. Trying today to get a Daily Painting going. I have vowed to step up to the plate in July, and I will. Maybe the profuse roses from the garden.... Hope you are all enjoying your Summer!

  2. Gee, thanks Joe! I had just started to use those prisma markers and it was awkward - but I really grew to like them. I'll have to get a few more colors - 6 pens didn't quite do it! Everyone should check out JOE's blog, too, http://joeboyleart.blogspot.com/! I'm a big fan!
