sketching Paris

I attempted to sketch another Paris building - hubby took this photo of the Paris Opera House.  My first dome attempt :)

There's a lot going on in this photo so I did some editing - also wanted to begin to use shadows and introduce some of the darkest darks.



And then, for something different, I tried a quicker sketch and simpler subject (except for the cars).

We walked home to our rental apartment many days on this street - the beginning of fall in Paris. Again added color with my Inktense watercolor pencils and a water brush.


Thanks for checking in - Bobi, thanks again for reminding and including me - it's a great way to start the new year!
