Sacred Heart Church
Well I'm back from my trip to Paris, France. It was a long 10 days. I don't remember a time that I've walked so much. I got to explore parts of Paris that I haven't been too before. We spent the day roaming, taking pictures, shopping, sketching,riding the tour bus that lets you get off/on at various stops, and watching Paris life go by. And it was burr cold.
A couple of things happened while we were roaming the streets of Paris. We had Cavalier sightings each day; we got to see dancers learn how to dance to Michael Jackson thriller music near the Eiffel tower; Gypsies tried to give us a gold ring on three separate occasions; a filming crew was filming a movie and we were caught in one of the scenes as we walked by;future artist drawing at Sacred Heart Church; and we got to see locate news crew's hanging out near the government offices waiting for a local story to break.
I did go to my favorite art store Sennelier which is right by the Seine River. I bought a couple of Blockx watercolour pigments that came in porcelain squares, some watercolor paper, and markers. The other art store I went too was hidden on a side street. There I found handmade watercolour paper...rough and smooth, which I bought a package of each; and I bought a new watercolour traveling palette that contains 18 square pigments, a small brush, a water container built in the case and a detachable water container. I can't wait to try out the handmade watercolor paper.
It was a good trip...but there is no place like home!
