I’ve had a morning off today, quite a rare occurrence at the moment and I was really excited about painting over my Arc de Triomphe sketch/colourwash that I used and added to on my computer yesterday. I wanted to make some subtle and some not so subtle use of colour but I knew I would have to be careful. I lived for a year in Paris when I was a student, it is a truly amazing place and the Arc de Triomphe has particular significance for me as it was on the rooftop that my husband proposed to me 13.5 years ago.
This is the result:
I am really thrilled with how this has turned out, the use of technology yesterday helped me to decide how I was going to paint this today. Am now off to work, pleased with how my morning off turned out.
