under an umbrella in paris



this is the my second parisian painting. its original (photo) is taken by the famous french photographer, my favourite robert doisneau in 1957 - its title is a musician in the rain.

really love your watercolor technique and the mono-treatment of this piece just adds even more to emphasis all those great effects you achieve.

Lovely, Krisztina. I really like monochrome illustrations (I've been trying a few lately) and yours come out very rich and luminous. Great atmosphere here...

This has almost a spy thing going on. Does he really play the cello or something else??? I love the sepia tones and over all feel. Very vintage. I really like it. This is so ooh la la!!!!

This has such a great feel to it . . . almost like an old-fashioned photograph.
