|"Cafe Bords du Seine," oil, 12"h x 8"w, ©Jill Banks 2013|
One of the pieces I worked on today, "Cafe Bords du Seine" was painted on the sunniest and warmest day during our March/April trip to Paris ... right on the spot. I wanted to add a little more definition to the characters who changed and moved while painting live.
You can take a look at it and other Parisian scenes (plus lots more) at the Great Falls Library (9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA) from July 1 to August 31.
