Visit to the Eiffel Tower…

The first sketch in my France sketch book actually came on the second day.  I had been so enthralled with Notre Dame Cathedral our first day, that I couldn’t put the camera down, so I was determined to sketch.  We hopped on and off the Metro and as we were approaching the Eiffel Tower on foot, we stumbled upon a little garden that was off the beaten path.

It had some benches, so I gave my husband and daughter freedom to go explore while I sketched.  The tower is very tall and large, and it took a while for me to figure out what I wanted to draw.  I was drawn to the detail, yet I didn’t have a lot of time.  I roughed in half a tower and hoped I would be able to finish it later.  After we had walked all around, under and through the tower and viewed it from across the bridge, my family was ready to go see the Arc de Triomphe, quite a distance away.

I stayed behind.  Blessing them for their energy, I worked on my sketch, enjoyed some fountains going off, and watched people…and the day was only half over!  Enjoy…
