Nîmes, France

Our first field trip was a to Nîmes. Once a Roman city rewarded to the soldiers from the African campaigns, it has since transformed into a living impressionist painting. I hadn’t sketched in a long time and you’ll be able to see the progression from bad to better throughout the day.

Above is a place where men and beasts died. That day, a jazz band performed.

In French this “temple” is called the square house, although I would argue it is pretty rectangular.


This tower was first built by the Celtics, then refurbished by the Romans. It is very old and has a spiraling staircase inside which you may climb, for a fee.
