la teste, arcachon ( france )

Postby beet » Sun Aug 28, 2005 9:30 am

Hi,
Started early walking to the railroad station, saw on a videostore's door a sticker of the Incredibles...Reminded me again to dedicate this serie of sketches to Dan Lee and Joe Ranft. It was a good reason to enjoy the day, too.

I changed my so-called plan at the last minute; I was supposed to drawn in the town of arcachon. Jumped form the train early, i ended walking the entire day outside, in woods and mostly on the beach. Didn't do a single sketch when i finally reached that town, except for the last piece, chilling out, waiting for my train, watching men playing the very french game of " boules".

great day.

I've put the complete 6 pieces-trip on my sketchblog, parvo beati...feel free to visit it :)

Nice lines! I remember your work from last time too. I've told several others to look at your drawings.
What part of France are you in?

thnaks all for the very nice comments :)
interesting to see that you people seems to dig the first one...I almost ran away because of the tourists crowd there.
Letter C, I'm currently living in the south-west of France. that dune is on the coast of the atlantic ocean. Area's mostly wellknown for the wine made around here.
