Castiglion Florentino

Robyn Sinclair
Watercolor on paper

Robyn sketched this postcard in Paris, France when she was on vacation last month and then she said she painted it in Italy when she got home.  It is lovely and a real treat for me because I was at this shop a gazillion years ago and it seems like yesterday.  This card is also special because some of us in the Postcard From My Walk group helped Sennelier with a study for their new formula of watercolor paint that has now just become available to the public.  Robyn said she hadn't realized it was beside the river, on the Left Bank.  It really was Sketchercise getting there and back.
PS the stamp is very cool, too.

I was a bit confused for a moment when I read the title and saw the painting underneath it. I recognised the Sennelier shop immediately - such a wonderful art shop - I make a pilgrimage to it every time I visit Paris.

If I ever get to Paris again, I'll make a point of getting to this shop - it makes a beautiful card!

Can I have a shop too please ? I know it must be a wonderful place to shop but Robyn has made it even more appealing.
