Day 735 – Yes More France!!!!


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.
