In May '05 I was given a mini assignment. While enroute to a watercolor workshop at Arts in Provence, I was to research as many Paris cafes as possible. Equipped with a sketchbook from Sennielier, a non-digital camera and a Paris By Arrondissement map I set out.
Hundreds of photos and sketches later, I knew I was hooked.
After a week of 2-3 petit déjeuners every morning, afternoon snacks and evening aperitifs (aperos) running from cafe to cafe, my head was turned around. I knew I was not ready for the pretty pink houses and villages perché of Provence.
