Royal Palm Place Downtown Boca Raton Art Diary

Updated: May 5

Royal Palm Place is the absolute charm of Downtown Boca Raton. It is filled with beautiful architecture, romantic courtyards, chic boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and bistros. You can't visit Boca without visiting Royal Palm Place.

My favorite time for sketching elegant Royal Palm Place is early morning. I come here before the sun rises. The morning air smells fresh because of a recent rain…birds are singing beautiful songs... I wander the cozy courtyards and choose location for drawing. Then, the sun reviles all the beauty - Royal Palm Place‘s courtyards are in pretty morning light. Colorful shadows are long on a sunny day, and it’s so much fun capturing those mysterious shadows.

I’ve met many amazing people in Royal Palm Place. I enjoy seeing their smiles when I show my sketches of the location in various stages of progression.

After finishing sketching sometimes I have a quick breakfast. Cote France - a traditional French cafe - an amazing spot to get a cup of fresh coffee and pastries. Another wonderful place for a breakfast is Saquella Cafe which is an Italian bistro with delicious coffee and tasty food. Royal Palm Place is perfect to go on a romantic walk, to meet friends, or to have a business meeting. I go there to get inspiration and create beautiful memories by sketching. Here are my favorite drawings I’ve made in Royal Palm Place. I hope you enjoy this art diary!
