Paris sketching on site...





After a long and unusually cold winter for us, we got a warm and sunny day with a great taste of spring today! I just love those first days with that feeling, although this one came a little early.
I'm glad I managed to get myself out to paint to celebrate the fact that you could actually sit outside without getting stiff by the cold.
I admit that even in great conditions I was a little "rusty" this first "on site sketching", but I hope I can continue this and feel more confident later on. Here I was on top of a building with a wide view. Just turning my head and the possibilities are huge and one better not to be in a hurry. At the end of my session it started to darken with clouds out west...
