Paris in August

Paris is emptying as the locals depart for the South, for the West, for Italy – anywhere with a beach. I have been sketching in line and wash from the cafés still open. You can build a much more finished image than pencil alone; and much better reference for a painting. And if you make a mistake with the initial pencil drawing – who cares! – it can be covered with the wash and ink.
