5th Arr.

5th Arr.

When traveling through France last year, I am continuing my series of paintings from that experience.  This is one from the city of Paris!  Found this interesting Parisian street art when wandering into the Rue de la Huchette area located in the 5th Arrondissement; hence the title of the painting 5th Arr or 5th Arrondissement.

The texture and shadows and the challenge of getting the graffiti to look spray painted in watercolor I thought would be an intriguing study and lesson.  No that is not me looking on!  A passer-by taking time to stop and look.

Discovered some new technique in texture. Might take a second look to make some additions yet but thought I would see if  I receive any feedback or reaction from this painting inspired by the streets of Paris.
