Poor Africantapestry is in some abandonment. Not completely, but just enough to make her feel a bit lonely. I hope (how many times have I said this already??) to get back to frantic activity soon….one day….hopefully very soon…!! So, to all those who follow in such good spirit, thank you for your patience and loyalty and hang in there, I’ll be back with gusto soon…one day….hopefully very soon!
About two weeks ago, I went sketchersizing by the Loire at our Loire house and stopped only once for this pencil sketch, which I then added some ink lines to with an ever so slightly wash, because the pencil was too hard to get some feeling into the sketch.

I went sketchersizing here in Beaulieu a few days ago and sat down just when the morning market started packing up for the day. I enjoyed a deca allongé at Les voyageurs with a view on the place and the marché.

We’ll wait since you promise you’ll come back. I love the watercolours.
We’re still here with you. Take as long of a break as you need! In the meantime, so happy to see your ‘sketchersizes’ and learn the term!
Ronelle – I love the market scene!!! I think I could paint those every day. Nice work on the market and the flower sketch!!
I like the market scene; it inspires me to take my sketchbook to the farmers market tomorrow and try my hand, though all the vendors have white umbrellas which is no fun at all.
Oh YAH, you are back and I sure hope more frequently.
Love your sketching!
I love your work–I post photos to my blog everyday and almost everyday I take photos-camera with me at mostly all times–mostly because there is a day or 2 when I feel a bit burnt out and need to refresh–then the magic/creativity returns. Bonne weekend Ronelle and I await with patience your new sketches.
I keep promising a la procahine…maybe your sketch will give me that extra push 😉
I do miss the markets of Europe.
Hi Ronell, loved your sketches with or without paint. Always delightful. I too am all used up at the moment but will rally soon. Always have in the past and no reason to believe it won’t happen again. See you Sketchercising soon.
I find this post so interesting as I’m going to that area of France very soon. Your sketches make me look forward to my trip even more.
thank you for your visits everyone…all appreciated!
We can patiently wait, Ronell, as everyone says, but how great when you show up. I also love your sketches, with or without color.
I am new to your blog but loved what I have seen so much that I am happy to wait for your new postings. I love your style.
So nice to see you peep in with lovely sketches – I feel like I’m neglecting everybody and everything right now – so much on the go… it seems like many of the sketchercisers are in the same boat. Love your Dordogne photos.
Good to see you back, Ronelle.
These sketches make me think, as I so often do when I look at yours and Casey’s blogs, that if I ever get to France again (my husband and I talk about it all the time), I’d love to go drawing with you ladies.
It’s so nice to read you and see your sketches again! I love this market scene! It feels so French!
I never care if you’re “gone” for a while–there are always good things here upon your return! Lovely, Ronell!
I always adore your lively sketches Ronel!!!!
Lovely sketches! It is always a pleasure to visit your blog. I’ve recently come across another blog and I immediately thought about you. I’d love to see one of your recipes over there:
Thank you for the visits and all your support…truly appreciated!
Lovely black and white sketches–I love your blog.
Hi, I feel like I need to copy your response and put it on my blog. Just go ahead and do what ever you want. You know we love you and anything you do is just fine. Especially if it is taking care of you!!!
your sketches always brighten my day Ronell!!!!
this is really cool
