La Grande Chaumière

watercolour and graphite on paper 29.8 x 21.0 cm (11.75" x 8.25")

I was drawing a week ago at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris. The Académie was founded in 1904, and has seen some well-known teachers and students.  More importantly for me, it offers daily open drawing sessions with a model.  I've only drawn there twice, both times with the same model, the one in this drawing.
