Store-fronts


Took a coffee break in town today, and drew two stores across the street. Sitting in the shadow of a tree, with a nice cafe latte, drawing away - isn´t that a great vacation thing to do? :)

11 x 7 cm, Lamy Safari, Noodler´s Lexington grey on Arches hot press paper. Watercolours added afterwards.

Great way to spend a morning! Looks like you enjoyed it. Great painting. I love your style. Are you still using the Kremer paints?

I really wish I could turn out a quick painting of this quality!! Hope you will be doing lots more over the holiday - if it's not too stressful ;)!

Hiya Nina, I was wondering- do you paint these on location, or doodle them on location, and paint them later?
Fabulous stuff :)

Wonderful paintings !this stile is that I like the most,I paint watercolor too and your paints are very nice .this look of the artist over the most simple thinks , is the discovery of a new world...isn't it ?
people think that is easy but I think this our personal world...with fantasy and imagination, very very personal and intimate.
I like your work.
