Just another day in Paris

Paris1

Sketchbook pages from a recent trip to Paris. I am aware that whilst allowing myself to draw whatever I am inspired by, when I look at the images as a collection, there are immediate similarities; the human body is almost always a focal point, particularly if there is a lean or stretch. It brings me back to years of life drawing with beautiful models who, at times during my degree, would dance during the life drawing session.

And then there is the balancing of imagery – the ripped poster in the Metro station, against the sketch of a classical piece of sculpture. The contrast between them drawing me into a world of ideas about value; the voice and power of Art.
