including architect Boulé from one of my first sketches of this trip.
Was a little overwhelming to sketch, sitting on the curb. Cars and motorcycles would pull up right in front of me, some pretending I wasn't there and others, making funny faces and hoping I'd draw them into the sketch. Next time I'll take my stool to sit on!
Today I'm off to Vaux le Vicomte this weekend for my Gabriel Prize project--hope to do lots of painting, if the violent thunderstorms we've been having (due to heat) don't pose a problem. Tonight is the amazing Saturday night candle lighting of the château and gardens--it is really beautiful. I'll post a photo here when I'm back on Sunday night.
