Rosa Bonheur and Canal St Martin

On Saturday I went to Rosa Bonheur, a hip hang-out in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont in the 19th arrondissement of Paris. It was a lovely sunny evening and everyone was sitting outside drinking rosé and snacking on charcuterie. Along with my sketch from Saturday I'm posting a Canal St Martin scene from the springtime, which I don't think I added before. Paris in the sunshine rocks!

NYC seen from Williamsburg

A bit late in the day, but here is the only painting I did during my recent trip to New York. It was a boiling hot 4 July and I spent a bit of time in the park they've created on the waterfront in Williambsurg. The area has changed quite a bit since I lived in New York 4 years ago. It's still great - just different.

Coffee in Laumière, Paris

I did these sketches at the weekend at a local café on the Avenue Laumière. The area is gorgeous at the moment - dappled with shadows from the rows of trees.
