At Versailles, the fountains are turned on Tuesdays, Saturday, and Sundays, for an hour in the morning and 90 minutes in the afternoon. The place really comes alive, is transformed by the white, moving water. It's a mad dash in too little time to try and see them all!
I did have a really nice sketching lunch with an architect at Versailles whose sketches are really good. Thanks, Ruaidhri, for cheering me up (despite the awful painting I attempted...)
Your sketch was great.
