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!
