Paris urban sketching pages of my diary

Paris sketchbook urban sketcher

Bonjour les ami(e)s! 
voilà some pages from my finished diary that I wrote and drew in several places -- Bordeaux, Sète, Paris and Academgorodok.  

There are pages from Paris about 2 days that I spent in Montmarte district, surrounded by the streets depicted in the books of George Simenon (I lived in the rue Rochechouart)

This is my mom's scotch terrier Pumba and my scribbles inside and ourside of Sacré-Cœur 
(Hitler said "Terrible" when he saw it)).

I stuck on the messe a bit, so I drew a priest, rose window and nuns.

My way one day: Barbes-Rouchchouat -- Rue du Havre -- Grands Boulevards (Capucines and Italiens) -- Notre Dame de Loret. 

And a tiny flower from Montmartre hill.

There are lots of so nice memories that I kept in this diary. That's really good to keep these things alive via sketching! 
This is my sketchbook tour flip trough all the pages here:

I'll be back with Sète and Bordeaux pages, and also the big travel to Marseille that I made for the New Year's days!

See you soon!

  9. Hi Erica :) I love your Pumba!!! Very sweet. I went to Paris in 1985 and my absolute favourite area was the Montmarte. Thanks for the memories! :)

  10. I've never done a travel journal before, but maybe it's because I don't draw. I love how you interspersed the drawings with photos, images, and tickets. This was a darling journal, and I also loved you added hearts in a couple of places, too. Thanks for sharing this beautiful journal with us at Art Journal Journey.
