Plein-Air Painting at Versailles with Niki Gulley

Versailles5" x 7" pastel by Niki Gulley

Day 5, Afternoon - Art Trek Paris with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Thoroughly enjoying the sunshine and this peaceful hidden garden, we scoped out another view and tried to capture more of the sense of being in France in our next sketch. Manicured, organized, and adorned with statues and urns as focal points, this vantage communicated the idea of the French formal garden that I was looking for. At the end of the day, the French groundsman was kind enough to offer us pastel artists fixative for our drawings! That definitely breaks the misconception we have of the French not being friendly! A perfect ending to a perfect day.
