urban sketching france : trip down memory lane

 

Sant-Paul-sur-Ubaye


Since I'm planning on teaching a 10 day painting retreat in France this September (details here), of course I'm dreaming about sketching those beautiful old villages and gorgeous landscapes again. And eating fresh croissants and drinking French wine!

A little trip down memory lane today with a few sketches from my previous trips to France over the last decade or so. The hashtag #ReneeInFrance on instagram has lots of my French sketches all in one place.

Join me in September for 10 amazing days of arty goodness.
