La Place du Martroi " French series"
These are scenes I have wanted to do since my last trip there ten months ago, this is my home town of Orleans , the place du Martroi is in the center where the Statue of Joan of Arc stands . When you grow up in a beautiful town , with so much history as a child you take all this for granted , but I think every one is the same way . I now go back and try to be a tourist and see the city with a different eye .
so here is a watercolor of it ,5x7 email me if interested

Nita, this is a WOW! Love it to bits! What a great scene, and I love all your little bits of color and detail.

This is a lovely painting. So glad you have posted it to share with us. And isn't it true that we often don't appreciate our own areas? Just today I was lamenting to myself that I didn't carry a sketchbook in Paris and England on my trips. Then I realized that I still have so much to capture in my own neighborhood! Anyway, this is gorgeous!
