Paris gardens provide a delightful escape from the hustle and bustle of city streets. In addition, they offer an opportunity to practice sketching and watercolor painting from a wealth of subjects, including architectural motifs, fountains, sculptures, flowers and trees.

Basic topics covered will include:
how to make quick thumbnail sketches to capture a scene
