Imaginary trip to Paris: My visit with Pan


<<< from my adventures in Laure Ferlita's An Imaginary Trip to Paris class >>>


It was a lovely Fall day in Luxembourg Gardens. I wandered over to see the statue of Pan that I had heard so much about. I was happy to find a bench that I could sit on for a bit while I admired all of the colorful flowers that surrounded the statue. The air was fresh and cool, and there were sounds of birds in the air. It was a beautiful scene, and one that was certainly a challenge to try to capture on paper.

Hi Claire! It's a pleasure to see us posting on the same schedule about Paris! As we've been discussing recently in class about style, I wanted to tell you that I absolutely love your style, especially the trees in this sketch! You've got Pan's pose down perfectly too!
