Day in Paris out and about

Had problems getting on to the Internet day.  Better late than never.  Today I learned something about myself while out sketching. As long as my back is against a wall, where nobody is peaking over my shoulder, I feel at ease doing plein air.  It's when people are watching me sketch,I feel uncomfortable because I'm having this inner dialog going on, saying my drawing looks like crap.   It's that inner critic that does not allow me to enjoy the process.  Instead of worrying about having a perfect drawing/ page I just need to stay in the moment,because the bottom line is that these drawings are creating memories of my trip for me.
