Hard to believe nearly a year has passed since I filled my sketchbook with drawings in Nice, and that I’ll be there again in just 12 days time.
Here are some happy memories from February 2019.
Cours Saleya in “Old Nice” a flower market before lunch and bric-a-brac in the afternoon
A balustrade in the Chateau Gardens
Trees in the Chateau Gardens
Nice Harbour, the entrance viewed from the Chateau Gardens
The Monastery Garden at Cimiez a short walk from where Matisse and Dufy are buried on the hill overlooking the city.
A drink before lunch in Place Garibaldi
Nice Opera, before the performance of a Sunday family concert of magical harp music by Dohnanyi and Francaix
Waiting for the bus by the Old Port
Gardens by the Musee Massena
Lunch on the Promenade
Patterns at Villa Kerylos
Pine tree outside Villa Kerylos
Towards the mountains and Eze from Port St. Jean
Last evening, watching the bay from the blue chairs
This is one of several sketch diaries from in and around Nice. Can’t wait to get there again and see my friend!
