Les Andelys looking up toward Chateau Gaillard – Richard the Lionhearted’s chateau stronghold above the Seine.
One of the Seine barges steaming toward Le Havre. These boats are just huge. I had no idea they were so long or so fast. I had to draw Quickly!!
Chateau Gaillard. I drew it twice. This one I messed up and didn’t get the town below in. I “fixed it” by adding ledger paper and some real French stamps.
This is what I was trying to draw in the last painting. I actually like both of them a lot now.
The Eglise Saint Sauverers in Les Andelys with Gussie and Bob from Seattle in front of the church.
Like the church and museum yesterday I first coated it with Quin gold and then a mixed grey of cerulean and burnt sienna. The blacccks are also a mix of burnt umber and ultramarine or Inathrodone blue.
Thanks for reading.
