Promenade des Anglais, Nice, Cote d'Azur - French Riviera
Recently, I went to Nice, France and my heart was touched by beauty, elegance and style. Palm trees, oranges, flowers, aristocracy, history, wine, cheese, sea, French Provence and vacation - these are the
words that highlight Nice.

This coastline was one of the first modern resort areas. It began as a winter health resort for the British upper class at the end of the 18th century. Nice became the playground and vacation spot of British, Russian, and other aristocrats, such as Queen Victoria and King Edward VII.
Promenade des Anglais is very famous in French Riviera and is lined with cafes and hotels, both modern and Belle Epoque, museums and luxury  apartments, the Promenade des Anglais is a long wide road which runs the length of the seafront at Nice. You walk across it and you're on the beach beside an unbelievably turquoise Mediterranean sea.
I decided to create my first illustration of the Cote d'Azur series by showing the romantic side of Promenade des Anglais.  I called this illustration: Rendezvous, Promenade des Anglais. This illustration reflects love at first sight and expresses beauty.
