Weekend pleasures: Fairtrade roses+Paris

fairtrade roses

No filter used here because these beauties are just naturally amazing. If only there was a way to bottle up the magic from these roses.. so dreamy!

Fresh roses + organic farm goodies: authentic macarons (this is what real French macarons look like!), heart-shaped fresh cheese on a coulis of berries😍 and red berry tea then spent the whole afternoon on my first still life. Birds and landscapes are my favourite subjects to draw and paint. But this Fado rose was calling out to me. The finished piece lacks any kind of chiaroscuro but I suppose creativity means focusing on the fun you have rather than the completion! Hopefully practice will make perfect!

FR Les plaisirs du weekend: stop inĂ©vitable pour mes roses chez actuelflors, du bio du ferme de saint-thibault: les authentiques macarons + du fromage frais en forme de coeur sur un coulis de baies rouges. Miam. Et n’oublions pas un thĂ© aux fruits rouges pour bien entamer le weekend, ensuite passĂ© le dimanche aprĂšm-midi Ă  faire mon premier dessin de nature morte. J’ai l’habitude de dessiner plutĂŽt les oiseaux ou les paysages, mais cette rose fado mĂ©ritait d’ĂȘtre immortalisĂ©e. Lol. Alors, le dessin final je trouve est dĂ©nuĂ© de chiaroscuro mais j’estime que c’est un bon dĂ©but et je me suis bien amusĂ©e! L’exercise amĂšnera Ă  la perfection, non? ;)
