Place des 3 Freres, Montpon Menesterol, France


Montpon Menesterol, France, 15" x 11"

A plein air painting of a square in Montpon, South West France, done from a roadside cafe/bar.  Parked cars are sometimes easier to draw/paint if they are all connected together.  I start by looking at the shapes of the car roof tops and it's just a series of peaks and troughs.  Then when that is done I draw in the windscreen followed by the bottom of the car, wheel arches and shadows.  It also helps if the cars are end-on rather than a side elevation.  A bit unusual for me to leave out some figures - must have been a hot day!
