This painting began as a demo in one of my classes. Later I felt like working on it some more and bringing it to completion. I had a tricky time with the cobblestones, but eventually got a handle on them...I especially loved painting the cobblestones in the umbrella's shadow and enlivening them with a variety of colour. I find shadows exciting when they contain reflected colour. If this painting dries I will take it with me to the art show and sale in the Thousand Islands this weekend.
