If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time you’ve seen at least one post about my favorite city, Paris. I’ve been there three times and have been in the city perhaps 20 to 25 days total. The second time I was there I did some sketching. It was fun to carry a sketch book around and just doodle. I spent a lot of time drawing the rose windows of Notre Dame. I filled pages of studies, but of course I can’t find them. But then there is this sketch. This is a study based on those original sketches plus a photo I took for reference. I was planning a large scale very detailed drawing, but never got past this quick pencil sketch. (I obviously didn’t use a straight edge for this sketch!)
I hope you enjoyed this bit of hand-drawn Paris!
