A week in Nice

February 13, 2020



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

The Monastery Garden at Cimiez a short walk from where Matisse and Dufy are buried on the hill overlooking the city.

This is one of several sketch diaries from in and around Nice.  Can’t wait to get there again and see my friend!
