Madamoiselle en Paris

Bonjour!! 
Just a little something from my Paris project. I haven’t really had a chance to learn how to use photoshop so I just mess around to see what I can do. These are inspired by Carole Wilmet a Belgian Illustrator. Her illustrations are REALLY cool!! I love the way she uses splashes of ink and colour on pencil drawings!

Paris day 3!!!

Such fun in Montmartre, and FYI macaroon icecream is definitely the way forward!! If I had all day I would sit and draw everything and anything I could see. Just be careful not to get trapped by pick pockets and don’t talk to anyone you don’t know. Ha sounds harsh but better to be safe than sorry 🙂 I really must get out my macaroon recipe and have another go, I still can’t seem to master them, who knew patisserie is so difficult?!

Most pictures were taken out of the coach window, so my apologies for any reflections and photo-bombing curtains!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OH MY DAYS made my WEEK!!!!!!!!

 

So much I had to do one in Black and White…

 

And sepia!

 

 

Just chillin, looking at one of the most iconic, romantic and beautiful buildings in the world! This was definitely the best day out of three! We had a tour of Paris and got to sketch some of Monet’s finest “the water lily’s” first hand, (he’s my favorite impressionist). I loved wearing my beret round Paris, pretending to be french, answering questions with “Oui” and greeting others with “Bonjour” saying “Merci” and any other french phrase I could think of. Later in the evening we went for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, super yummy. Then finished the evening with a river boat cruise. Perfect x
