Drawings from Bretagne...




I have just for a week holiday in Bretagne...
It really did me good, and I feel the change in my soul. I feel as I got new energy and inspirations again. 
Weather was very unpredictable, which made it difficult to plan anything, but we managed to do lots of walking and visiting without getting too wet and we also had moments of warming sun. 
My son had a few days of sailing classes when waves and winds weren't too strong. I don't know how he managed to stand the cold though, even if he wore the outfit for it he must have been terribly cold out there. 
I tried my first swim one morning, I couldn't stand more than a few seconds completely under the water. I love cold waters, but this temperature was something I've never experienced before. Sadly I don't know exactly how cold it was, would be good to know where my limits are. 
As usual I managed to do just a little drawing during family vacations, here are a few of them...

:D You went in the water .... in APRIL??
T'es courageuse toi! Même en Juillet l’été dernier c’était archi froid - Je pense que si j'avais fais la même chose je serai une cube de glace :P
Lovely drawings by the way - I love the top one especially.... the lighting is beautifully rendered.

Comment ça, pas beau en Bretagne? tu travailles dedans? Bon bon je fais le malin mais j'aimerai bien un peu de frais. Bravo pour les croquis en n&b jadore, je reviens de Crète et la bas les arbres se cachent aussi derrière les cailloux pour pousser.je regrette en voyant ton travaille de ne pas l'avoir dessiné.
