Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Sketching a streetscene in Beaulieu sur dordogne.

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..

    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.
