The pedestrian signal is green, inviting me to cross Quai de l’Hôtel de Ville and perhaps traverse Pont d’Arcole to Ile de la Cité. And really, is there any better way to explore Paris than to walk?
The two small images above show the work in progress. The first image was taken when I had undercoated the whole piece with oil pastels – applied with a bristle brush. The second image has some layers of coloured pencils over the top of the pastels. Pencils + pastels allow deep intense colours.
Plus a note to say “Entranced” opens this Thursday, 7 September, at 6 p.m. Details below.
