I love Paris, it’s a beautiful city that I’ve visited countless times and even spent a month there one summer doing a training course. But I just couldn’t think of what to do for this day of the challenge. I ended up spending ages browsing for pictures that inspired me and when I couldn’t find anything that really screamed Paris to me, I gave up and decided to go with some cute illustrated Parisian women, an Eiffel Tower and a poodle! (Google images threw up a lot of Parisian ladies out walking their poodles by the Eiffel Tower when I searched for illustration and Paris)
It was a fun one to do and tested my freehand painting skills. I enjoyed doing the cute little faces and I think the poodle silhouette came out looking very much like a poodle!
I’m really enjoying this challenge so far (especially now we’re onto the European cities!) and am pleased with a lot of the designs I’ve come up with. A big thank you to Guilty as Charged for organising such a fun theme.
I used: Don’t Pretzel my Buttons – OPI, Warwick Avenue – Nails Inc, Revlon Red – Revlon, Matt Aqua – BYS, Brazilian Bikini – Sephora, black and white acrylic paint.
Love your eiffel tower!
Thanks! I guess it wouldn’t be Paris without the Eiffel Tower!
Love it! The sketchy effect on the Eiffel Tower is awesome.
Thanks. I was debating whether to do a silhouette or sketchy Eiffel Tower so hopefully I made the right choice.
Wow, awesome! 🙂
Thanks! I had fun doing them.
Ohh god, They are so pretty and intricate. Really appreciate ur work. I really get that paris feeling 🙂
Thanks! That’s what I struggled with – getting the Paris feeling, because to me Paris isn’t about a certain landmark or object, it’s the feeling that makes the city special.
