Paris Sketchbook, Post 5, Rues Castiglione and Rue de la Paix
Ironwork, knockers, and colorful doors are all over Paris, but those along the Rue Castiglione and Rue de la Paix were extra special! This is the area near the Ritz Hotel! One of my favorite movies is French Kiss with Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan, and here we were! The ironwork in the circle was in a window above a door on the Rue Castiglione, and the knocker on the blue door was brass locatd on the Rue de la Paix. I am working straight to ink, no sketching first with pencil, then watercolor.
