UP to the top of Montmartre early in the morning to paint and draw near the resident artists on the Place de Terre near Sacre Coeur. The red tablecloth was Polychromos 126 #pencilscolormyworld.
DOWN the long hill with engaging guide Corey Frye (A French Frye in Paris--blog) who filled us in on the wild lives of the artists who lived there in the early 20th century--VanGogh, Renoir, Toulouse Lautrec, Utrillo, Seurat and more.
UP to the Musée de la Vie Romantique and a lovely exhibit of JP Rédouté--a rock star of the 18th C botanical world.
DOWN to the Seine and one last
UP to the top of the Eiffel Tower, which never ceases to thrill with the sheer height and spectacular views.
DOWN to a recap dinner with friends old and new.
All in, the day was a huge UP!
