We were having coffee at “chez Christine” in Provence and a friend who joined us said : “look Agnès, wouldn’t that be a perfect scene for your sketches with two symbols of French country life, the 2CV and a cyclist in one go!” “Yes of course” I replied, all is missing is someone appearing with a baguette and wearing a béret !
We had a lovely morning on the Cap d’Antibes yesterday.The weather was hot and sunny. I took this time a parasol to cover my sketchbook page not to be blinded by the white of the paper plus a sun hat and no sunglasses so I could see the real colours.
Morning at the beach last Sunday in Antibes : I started to sketch people although they were moving all the time, some exhibited longer “pauses” allowing me to draw them as fast as I could. The woman and the man standing seemed to be in a very animated discussion. Although I could not hear them from where I was, judging by their body language, the subject was rather serious !
My beach set-up, you will see the result in the next post… see you very soon !
Visiting the town of Thun during my holidays in Switzerland, I saw this traditional charming town house and sketched it afterwards onto my moleskine book.The town itself is a delight for the eyes and I could have spent several days sketching there. So much to see and so little time… But my camera will allow me to do more paintings in the weeks to come.
