Drawing in Arles, France

You can find these cheery shutters on a building right near a bridge with gorgeous views of a river in Arles, France. I was there, taking part in the Virtual Paintout, drawing from this view in Google Street View. Be sure to cross the bridge and turn to the side and look up and down the river!

Very nice drawing Rose! What kind of paper are you using? I like the soft texture.

Thanks Ann. It's Stonehenge paper - the white one, although I find the colored papers to be very soft and the white one to have a crisp texture to it. I like the colored ones for portraits, as it seems easier to achieve softness.

Thanks Rose. I thought it might be Stonehenge. You know how to use it well :-)
