"Paris- Part 1"

I have recently been on a few romantic weekend breaks to Paris over the last few months, visiting the other half who is currently working out there. I love every thing about Paris, but most of all is it's artistic culture. It is a beautiful city and so inspiring to draw. I have a few more sketches to come, as I'm currently finishing off a couple of inspirational drawings of the city and it's environment. But, for now I wanted to get the ball rolling, so here is my first 'Paris Post'.
It is the view from the apartment window. I loved the contrast from the bright city lights below to the dark moonlit sky.
I originally took a photo (TOP RIGHT) on my phone, but it never gave the sight and colours justice, so thats why i decided to play the hand of God and pick the colours myself. Ok, so the picture ended up being more of my imagination towards the end, but in my head, thats how i remember it. (TOP LEFT). Below is a close up section of my painting.
Keep a look out, i'll get "Paris - Part 2" up as soon as all the details and trimmings are finished. :)

Thanks again to all the bloggers out there who follow my blog and keep on coming back!! You guys ROCK!!!
All support and comments are always appreciated!
Will be back soon!!
Bye for now,

The Cat adds a perfect touch. Your Imagination is always better than "reality".
