Blair and I have the use of a car this week, so this morning we hopped into the Ford KA and took off to paint. We'd been north of Paris this weekend, but didn't make it as far as the bridge at Vernon. Today we made that our destination.
After one false stop (things look mighty good from the highway), we made it to the Seine at Vernon. It was rather brisk out, with intermittent sun. We found a picnic table to paint from, this being a destination scene. A half a dozen ducks waddled over to check our basket (empty). There was an unusual goose sort of bird sitting in the grass, so I warmed up with a sketch on winebox. Blair jumped right in on the house on the bridge, and after 20 minutes with the bird, so did I.
