City Hall of Paris: the Mairie, as well known as Hôtel de Ville

Watercolor from the Paris City Hall to illustrate an article in the bilingual New York magazine, France-Amérique.

This building with flamboyant architecture is rich in infinite details carved in this freestone, adorned with sublime slate roofs.

Even though this building offers cool and white colors, I opted for more shimmering tones, with a beige and ocher color palette to illustrate a warmer aspect to the Paris City Hall. As an illustrator of magazine, I have several occasions to paint many compositions about History, people or architecture.

Of course, I really enjoy to do paintings of Paris : its monuments, rooftops, skylines or any kind of building drawings. Usually, I paint on location as a parisian Urban Sketcher.
