My first stroll around the city led me to Place Massena. I'm not sure about all the historical aspects, for I was really just walking with no particular aim, but I think it is the biggest square in Nice. I might be wrong, though, so someone correct me if that's the case, please.
I didn't want to get lost in details (and I didn't have the patience for them either), so I applied the watercolour first and pencil later, like I first tried in Gréoux-les-Bains. I don't like the result as much, but it is definitely a good technique for me when I just want to record the impressions of a place and not all its details.
|An old lady came to chat with me. She moved from Paris to Nice years ago and never looked back.|
|I aged Nathalie considerably on this portrait...|
|It was so nice and sunny that day!|
|I have to saturate my colours more, I think|
|I love Ben's work!|
Instead, I took out my Pentel brushpen and started to quickly sketch the people there. That was a fun exercise. Will definitely do it again.
