These are all such delightful sketches! Like little snapshots of a vacation. Your sketch of the two people sitting next to each other; the one on the right seems to be looking at the one on the left. Minimal lines but packed with character. Your washes, lines and everything are just wonderful. Great memories. One day I hope to make it to Paris.

Well,I don't know how to make a slide show, but this looks like one to me! A great little display of your sketches. You did a wonderful job and they certainly convey the places you were. Thanks for sharing! nancy

Absolutely delicious. I feel as if I'd been there, with a delightful artist friend, looking over your shoulder and saying "WOW."

What great sketches. I was there with you. I love how simple your sketches are and your layouts are great.

Deborah said...

Wow!!! Stunning! Tell me please what you are using to achieve those lovely lyrical pen lines - both thick and thin...it is just beautiful!

Wonderful sketches--this is exactly what I am trying to learn to do. Thanks so much for giving us a taste of Paris this week!

Fabulous, delicious, delightful, a wonderful way to start my morning!! Even Cold, and Wet Paris is a dreamy delight for the senses and we knew you would capture the best!!! Thanks for sharing.

What wonderful sketches! I especially like Les Invalides and the lady on the red seat - the colours are beautiful. What a treasure this collection will be as a reminder of that week in paris.

Those are wonderful sketches. I'm French but living in Canada, and i felt right at home. I love how you captured the people in the cafe. The guy with the diamond sweater would have to be my uncle, or cousin, or... so French. Well done.

Jennifer, I completely adore the way you use lines and colors to create the scene. It has something magical and simple that makes me wonder how it can look so great! congratulations!

Great accomplishment! I think these have more feeling than a compilation of photographs of the same images.
