IFJM 22: Toulouse

22 April

“Watercolor is like a pet.
It has its own mind,
and you can only domesticate it to a certain degree.
You’d better find a constructive way of cohabitating.”

Felix Scheinberger
[Urban Watercolor Sketching, via Marion VO]

W15 4 22 IFJM 010From my journal: “Toulouse was part of the Camino or path of Saint James.  Saint Sernin-Basilica is part of the UNESCO Heritage Site.  Two places to cross the river in the 1600s: Point Neuf. built in the 16th Century, and the Bazacle, a ford across the Garonne, built in the 12th Century.”

“They tried to bury us.
They didn’t know we were seeds.”  Mexican Proverb


Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal, Pentalic HB woodless pencil, De Artramentis Document and Super5 ink, and Daniel Smith, Holbien and QoR watercolors.
