europe sketchbook

corner of rue de l'epron and rue saint-andre des arts
Feeling inspired by "Canciones para Despues de una Guerra (songs for after a war)," a film by Basilio Martin Patino (a beautiful compilation of footage from 1940s Spain). More came from this which I'll share tomorrow. :)
 The view out my bedroom window in Paris (unfinished)
 on rue de seine, the street of my hotel
 view from bedroom window, looking left
So here are some of my sketchbook pages from Europe!
Most of my drawing was done in Paris since that was my first real alone time. I actually ended up writing much, much more than drawing. I'm happy about that, though I wish I had found more time to draw the Paris rooftops. So beautiful..
xoxo, Amanda
