Just Us




Flashback to Paris.  I love Parisian cafes;  the idea of sitting at a table all morning sipping my cafe au lait and watching the world go by is very enticing.  But on vacation, we never take more than a short break because there's always so much to do.  But at least I can bring a photograph home and make a painting of it to keep the memory.

I liked this image because of the way these two are cuddled together and the pink color of the cafe.  It was a complicated scene so I did a value sketch (no color only focusing on light vs. dark) to help me organize it.  I'm pleased with the oil sketch, so I think I'll do a larger 30x30 version.  I'll show you when I'm finished!
