Sketching

 Pages From My Sketch Book

So much has happened in the last few weeks, enough for several blog posts!
I will begin with our holiday and share a few of my sketches I made in and around the beautiful city of Nice.
You can not help but be inspired by the wealth of art, history and culture of the cote d'azur.
I enjoyed visiting The Musee National Marc Chagall, more than 250 works are on show.
The brilliant colours of his vast Biblical works were dramatic, full of energy and immense love.
In one room there was a collection of dream like works entitled le Cantique des Cantiques, meaning Song of Songs.
 Chagalls use of colour is powerful, exciting and combined with his themes of love, immensley uplifting.
My sketches are from my morning spent on Castle hill which seperates the Old Town of Nice from the port.
I will post more of my stitching works soon.

Beautiful sketches! And oh, I'd so love to see that much of Chagall's work all in one place. He is one of my favourite artists yet I've never seen one of his paintings in real life :(
