Gardens Of Versailles

Lately I've been going through my Paris drawings that I made when I visited last summer.  While we were there we visited many places including Notre Dame, and Versailles.

I have to say that Versailles was intense! I don't know what it was about that place! Intense and beautiful at the same time. I spent most of the time outside in the garden area. What struck me the most were the pointy trees that looked like giant green fuzzy cones, which are very different from American gardens. The shape of the garden was also very different. It was more of a rectangle but very structured and extremely planned out.

Here are a few drawings I made of the garden in Versailles.

On another note if you happen to be in Paris in June my mentor and teacher, Veronica Lawlor is having an exhibit of her artwork. Please visit her blog for more information.- Danielle
