I sat on the terrace of Café Douceur this afternoon and while sipping my coffee, I sketched the street. My pen ran dry on my halfway through the sketch, which resulted in some thin, scratchy lines. I hope the colourful splashes watercolor make up for it..

Angela..thank you. Oh yes, it is always a delight sitting on a terrace and sketching something…it gives me such pleasure.

Merci Monique…ah c’est vrai? Je suis tres contente! Et maintenant c’est ton tour de faire un petit scene urbain en aquarelle?
So delightful, Ronelle. I always love your buildings and streets. Love the colors and the washes with which you fill them. These just light up the pages.
