Friday Challenge: The Biggest Day of My Life: one day in Paris

“Arc de Triomphe” by @stef1




Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,


That was very busy week and I had so little time for doing Art, nevertheless I thought that I prepare something for this Friday challenge.

When I heard the topic I thought that this is a dream that probably everyone would have, starting with childhood time when we read all the adventure books like A. Dumas The Three Musketeers we all dreamed to visit France and Paris once in our life.

But another reason was an impressive architecture many of them, one of my favourite is The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, when we see the holiday this is one of the place with the flag placed in centre of the arch.

That is why one of the surprise that my hubby made a spontaneous trip for weekend to visit beautiful city of Europe.

That was my dream to do this painting already for many years but never had time therefore this is now my contribution to the challenge that I specially made and was working last 3 days and finished last night.


I hope this is still not too late to submit it and that you like this version of Watercolor painting.

Thank you for your attention and I am really glad that you like my painting and also a fan of this historical heritage.

I am really honored for the reward and wish you to make many more people happy :)

I love Paris..Beautiful drawing!

Hi @sardrt, thank you for you nice comment. This is the place where I think for us who do not live or see such beauty daily it is like a dream, the city, architecture, bakery, coffee. Maybe for many of us good because only then we appreciate it :)

I have been to Paris many times and will return as soon as possible. For me, it is an extraordinary city that gives me back three years of life every time I go there: museums, parks, architecture, its cuisine ... everything, I love everything about Paris.

Paris is said to be one of the most romantic cities to visit @stef1
Your painting is lovely :D

Thank you too @steemcurator01 for stopping by. Looking forward to new topics :)

This picture is very impressive! I am particularly struck by the clear drawing of the architecture. This is so difficult to do with watercolors, at least I rarely get it. What a good you are artist !

Good luck to you Steph and creative inspiration for new beautiful paintings!

Thank you @singa for comment, I love architecture and to do it in watercolor that is the most enjoyable medium :)

beautiful work my friend

Thank you @betzaelcorvo for lovely comment :)

Wow I love this painting @stef1 !
I really want to go there someday. Hopefully this pandemic will disappear and everything will go back to normal so that we can travel somewhere else especially in Paris. Thank you for your painting, it's like you brought me to one of my dream places. :)

Agree, this is wonderful place and still has so much of history in every single corner. Hope the quarantine will come down and people will have a chance to travel again :)

Amazing artwork, Stef! I love the level of detail you achieved within the arc. I'm sure you enjoyed it a lot! Paris looks so magic to me hahaha having the chance to go and learn about the city's rich history would be awesome.

Thank you for stopping by @siucatti, my favorite topic and of course this beautiful subject made my work enjoyable :)
