I've been wanting to paint Paris facades for a while now, for a personal project.
And what better way to stop dragging my heels, then to put them on PB.
I never expected such a warm response from you all, PB readers!
Paris is very much a grey city... Paris grey skies are reknown, along with the classic, formal buildings... There's a general greyness overall. Here's a cat for those of you requesting one - black, not grey...sorry. But the slashes of brilliant color you see in these typical facades are unique to Paris.... Like the brilliant scarves Parisiens often wear with their neutral clothing. Ask any photographer and they will tell you grey makes a great background for colorful photographs. Check out their portfolios = almost always grey! The greys enliven the brilliant colors. And vice versa.
Well really quite economically in fact.
