My Travel Sketches from Paris - Carnet de Voyage à Paris

We've back from Paris a few weeks ago and now I find scraps of paper in my bag, in my jeans pockets, in my porte-monnaie. It would be nice Paris travel sketchbook if I accumulate it all. I would LOVE to share it here with you, so I'd upload some now, and some later.

These fast sketches I made very quickly in the Jardin du Luxembourg while waiting for my dadd and hubby. This is an Delacroix admirer of the bronze Eugene Delacroix monument:
Paris, Jardin du Luxembourg, Delacroix Sketch
and then I moved toward my point préféré of the Jardin du Luxembourg. So this is the sketch of lovers (Acis and Galatea) of La fontaine Médicis. It was built in about 1630 by Marie de Medici, the wife of Henry IV and regent of Louis XIII.

There is a caffée that I love on the street St.Martin, close to Hôtel de Ville - Le cafe Livres. I was really happy to find this sketchbook with this fast sketch:
Paris-Travel Sketchbook, Cafe de livres

and I found there le livre, the book with my name.

You see, there is a Voltaire's phrase Aimez qui vous aime - Love the one who loves you. Et oui, seulement comme ça ! I bought this card in the Pantheon, where you cqn stay for 1000000 years watching the magic sculptures of the French Revolution

Morning watercolor sketches in Lafrancaise

French Breakfast Watercolor

Croissants and coffee - the every morning pleasure. 
And what a subject for drawing and watercoloring


One sunny day on the threshold of autumn.

 I watch the windows of the former stable. Once there were beautiful graceful horses who watched its masters from this window.
 I guesse I still feel its internal power that remained here for good.

MOISSAC. St.Pierre Abbey

Hi dearest-s! I came back from Moissac!
A village with a grand castle where it was the strongest Benedictine abbey someday. This is the Saint-Pierre Abbey - Ex Benedictine and Cluniac monastery, founded by Clovis, according to legend. In fact it started in the middle of the VII century by Saint Didier, bishop of Cahors. And this is the one of the most beautiful cloisters in the world.

MOISSAC. St.Pierre Abbey - CloistreMOISSAC-Abbey-Photo

Look: I'm taking a photo of the Devil's wall, the Divine is behind me, The Revelation is above me, and St.Pierre and St.Isaiah are around:

This is the Apocalypses, aka Revelation with the god, apostles and 24 monastic elders. They are funny! They drink and have fun, despite the doomsday

I drew some points on the run: 

Tower, Cloister and 3 vieillards


Market in Moissac


 I drew it in the cafe a little bit later, but this wine label is from other region of France - it's just we drank this wine yesterday night (and yes, I still have the wine in my head while drawing)

We lived in Lafrançaise, small village close to Moissac, in the grand house with the fields around, there was a lovely German madam proprietor Christa and her dog Max. I tried to paint this house and la pelouse

And some details of the place, some local french views to keep in my eyes

              I've painted it !

PS! And some real impression - the bells ring in the  St.Pierre Abbey cloistre - a very short video, but I still love to catch this purifying sense of ringing air in the monastry walls
