sketching at a cafe

sketching at a cafe

After emerging from the Musee Delacroix (with his studio and wonderful garden) the rain came down.  So we ducked into cafe au Chai de l’Abbaye on Rue de Bourbon le Chateau where E. made this sketch of a wooden figure of a girl in a shop window who reminded her of Velazquez’s las Meninas except with leaves in her hair. I watched the drawing unfold with my mouth full of duck pate.
