Marie-Antoinette at Le Grand Palais des Glaces

I went with SOLLI to LE GRAND PALAIS DES GLACES not Marie-Antoinette
But wouldn't it be nice if Parisians were dressed in full 18th century Louis XIV costume whilst skating?
My first time experiencing the lightshow
And disco show by DJ Eric Pryde.
Very dramatic fun even though neither of us put on the skates/patins included in the entry fee.
While hundreds skated by and will continue to skate through 9 January.
I scribbled in the dark the big ice bear carved by sculpture Richard Orlinsky (he also created the chocolate bear at the Salon du Chocolat in November.
One scribble leads to another - the sketch for the January Paris letter.
Where Marie-Antoinette comes into the picture.
Why not put an Eiffel tower in her hair, Champagne, glasses, caviar, oysters?
Who knew the V and A museum lets you muck about with powdered wigs plus accessories online. My monsterpiece...ahem
The finished January letter art came out a bit better me thinks and your name is personally enscribed on it.Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast. Please share with a friend. If you'd like to receive Parisbreakfast letters, watercolors and mapin your mailbox, please look in my Etsy shop.
