Notre Dame

Yesterday, it started to rain again while I was walking 
to buy watercolor paper near the Pantheon.  So, I 
made a left turn and joined the long lines to enter 
Notre Dame.  Walked around the entire interior, 
then found a spot to sit.  Listened to mass in 
French while drawing.

I did the complete line drawing in the cathedral, 
but it was too dark to paint it there. And since 
today it poured like cats and dogs, I was able 
to stay inside and work on several sketches, 
including this one.  This is such a big Parisian icon,
I felt some pressure to do a good job...
