The fountain view I drew and painted on site, in the heat. I am thinking about adding more to it, but I like the gesture of the water so much, I'll likely leave it as is.
The second is the courtyard of Vaux's cafe, which is its own right is very beautiful. It was again blazing hot, the sun making the stone seem to glow. I sketched the view on good watercolor paper while having a tea, and then painted it back at the Cité.
