Saint Denis and other places…

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

…such as inside my head.


I got out of the apartment around noon, and walked to rue Saint Denis, to sit in a coffee shop and draw passers-by. Unfortunately, the weather, while great for kite-flying, soon got a little sprinkly. So, I only managed the above sketch of a woman, bundled up.

This guy below looks a little upset. I’m not a fan of war, or Nazi Germany, but I love airplanes. Have many of them in my head in detail, thanks to building many models as a kid.


Lastly, I was copying faces out of the paper. The big one is Xavier Dolan, a local film director. Don’t like being too slavish, drawing photos. But I am happy when a face actually looks like someone, and is in proportion.
