Notre Dame Cafe

Painted another French scene from my own photos. It's up to the painter what he leaves in or takes out and this was no exception as I was more interested in getting a painting, not a photograph. The photograph, like the sketch is only a starting point. From here on I'm more interested in getting the right feeling of light, putting light against dark, softening and hardening edges etc. I liked the fact that he seems to be the only one working as the other waiter stands by and everyone one else is either talking or sitting.
