In the Luxembourg Gardens with Laura
Laura of Laurelines and I met up yesterday for an afternoon of sketching, in Paris. We also fit in some art supply shopping (oh – the Sennelier shop!) and had a great lunch at the Coupole, (Picasso and Hemingway’s old hangout). This was a big deal for me, because I first decided to try blogging after coming across her wonderful Paris drawings last October. If you follow her blog, you should know that she is just as beautiful and elegant as her drawing style, and lots of fun to spend an afternoon with.
In the morning we drew at the Médicis Fountain, and after lunch sat by a permanent Pétanque game and drew the people playing and especially the spectators. Laura did a beautiful sketch of me while I was drawing other people. Altogether une journéé très agréable!
Here’s the portrait she did of me :
my one sketch at the Médicis Fountain :
and here are a few random people sketches from the pétanque game:
Laura’s drawings are gorgeous – she’s able to capture a person right away, and includes beautfiful detail. Make sure to have a look at her work!
