More Paris Landmarks

Yesterday, the weather was beautiful. After sketching the Tour Eiffel, I walked to the Champs Élysées to see the Arc de Triomphe, which I had not yet seen.  Then it was to the Petite Palais, where I saw an exhibit of work by Felix Ziem, then stayed till late to do this sketch and paint it on site.

The Petite Palais image was good as a pencil sketch, but I don't really like what I did with the color.  It's so hard, especially at the end of a long day, and it's difficult to paint anything complex on site too.  Ah well.  I'll be working in my studio most of tomorrow, but I hope to go out and do a sketch in the afternoon.  

One week from today, I'll be on a plane for home, so I'm trying to work a lot!!
