The Eiffel Tower is something that I had to try painting and sketching. It is so massive that you sort of get lost in it when you're looking at it. Our rental apartment in Paris had a view of the tower, so I was able to paint it at sunset and at night. The titles of these are:
"Alnog the Seine" 4 x 6
"Night View of the Tower" 4 x 6
"Tour Eiffel" 2 1/2 x 3 1/2

Here is my third group of paintings in Paris. There are so many bridges and so much along the Seine. I had so much fun painting there. In order these are : "Tour Boat on the Seine," "Photographer's Dream," and "A Walk Along the Seine." All are 4 x 6.

Here is the second installment of paintings done in Paris. These were done in ink and watercolor. The cafes and restaurants all have such character there. In order these are: "Parisian Lunch," "Paris Europe," and "Clair de Lune." My problem was always finding someplace to sit and sketch and paint. Often I ended up standing and leaning against a building.
