"Day to Night"

© Leigh 2010

Thought I would step off my usual path of my art and add some variety, so I painted a street scene in the Montmartre district in Paris..Rue Norvins to be exact. I had a crepe there at Au Pichet du Tertre and thought what a great idea to paint places I have been.. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do and I also hope you are having a great week.

PS- Should be getting my first tee sample this week so I will be adding them to my Etsy shop very soon!

Thanks everyone :)

@ nicole leigh smith - I did yes, I have a few similar that I painted in oil years ago, but not with my latest techniques that I have grown into this past few years..I never took it any further, glad I did step away for a sec and open a new door so to speak

@Rachel Lynne- That is so cool, keep me posted on the film for sure..
