Day 565 – Place de la Concorde 

 
  

Place de la Concorde where Madame Guillotine once reigned and  Madame De Farge knitted madly away as royals heads rolled during the French Revolution. The place is enormous. The statues were nearby and the fountain and obelisk a long way off. 

  This was drawn while I sat on a bench in front of the L’Orangerie in the late afternoon. I think we had walked about 8 miles that day. A LONG day. Good to put my feet up and draw. 

I used a lot of Winsor yellow, Inathrodone Blues. The turquoise green on the lights was made with either Holbein Marine blue or Cheap Joes Andrews Turquoise. I can’t remember which. Sorry. I also used a lot of Quin magenta and coral and Quin gold to make it glow. 

Once again my brain is fried from too much walking in Hitchcock Woods in Aiken today. Not quite four miles.

Stay warm. Going down to twenty tonite. Brrrrr. Break out those wooly socks!!
