Paris in my sketchbook

Paris-Carnet-de-Voyage
In fact not just Paris. I've been around, you know. Paris, Bordeaux, Bassin D'Arcachon (Gujan Mestras, La Teste de Buch, Dune du Pyla and around) and ALSO Pays Basque: San Sebastián (Donostia) and Hondarribia

I'll pick all these memories one day. But for a while some Paris ones.
I came there in my birthday, from Prague. 
I look people in the airport when we're all coming to Paris:

It was cold and windy.  And just amazing to meet there with Maurizio, to celebrate my birthday and endlessly walk around.
So some Paris places that I managed to put in my sketchbook! 
My favorite bookshop Shakespeare and Company

 It's from there, from Sh&C°window I see Notre Dame and then watercolor it

Notre-Dame-Watercolor
 On the Pont des Arts and in the park of Henry IV - 'Vert Galant'
  It was a little spontaneous show with men chorus -- Take a look how they sing:

And here I'd rather said "Don't take a look on my drawing of all this".... but well, it just was too fast!
NB.It's not a Centaurus. It's a silhouette of Henry statue

To be continued!
