The Moulin Rouge
We were in a lively section of town when we came across quite a site - a building with a windmill on its top!! It is the Moulin Rouge which is the most famous Parisian cabaret and it has been dazzling audiences since 1889!! The Moulin Rouge is known as the birthplace of the saucy French Can-Can. We enjoyed some wine during the evening as we watched the Can-Can dancers. They were truly amazing!!
Thoughts.... well... I tried something different for me (no pencil or pen sketch -- just brush). Sort of strange... but I guess you get the feeling of a Can-Can dancer.
