I have not done one of these in a while.  I love doing these.   Photo from Morguefile...My take on the scene.   It may look a little askew my paper is slightly curved but my verticals are vertical.   Any other suggestions are welcome

This is cool, somewhat whimsical.

I like the style.

You've done a marvellous job with this painting! Lots of lovely details! I am missing some of the shadows - not sure if it is an overcast day :) I see a bit under the awning but not seeing it under the tables and chairs and people's feet. Not sure what the reference photo had but feel the painting would really pop with stronger shadows. :)  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Tania, I will look at it again.   I know I put them in.....maybe not deep enough.
