Last month we went on a course trip to Paris for 5 days. It was my first time there and a wonderful experience.
I recorded most of my impressions and observations in my sketchbook and felt as if I was seeing so much more by doing so because drawing really does make you look in different ways.
It was pretty cold so I had to adopt a relatively quick way of working which really helped to loosen up my drawing and had a greater impact on my overall drawing approach than I could have anticipated. It certainly helped me to value the act of drawing much more than the final outcome.
I really want to do more trips like this very shortly!
I hope you enjoy a look into my Paris sketchbook! :)
