Lovely and evocative!

i love this one!

Very nice, Julian! Good luck to Ruth!

Oh wow! Gritty and full. Such a contrast with the whimsical nature of your provencale idyll

I laughed when I saw the wet roof tops. We have been getting so much rain across our southern states and many of us wish we were in " sunny France!"

I do love the atmosphere and colors in this view. Thanks.

Wow! Beautious. ;)

It's a big win!

I have a Paris-wet-rooftop series of photo references which I have never used. Mine were from a hotel room in the Opera district. Your beautiful little painting is inspirational for me to make use of mine.

i lived in paris where my son, louis was born - so "this oh! so different painting" evoked many a dear memory - super work!!!

Good idea. I know you can paint still life subjects, really dig the out door subjects.
You got a hot brush.
I hope you are going to the bank.

Landscapes and still life are always good, but its a treat to see your occasional urban works.

Hi Julian,

"├ža c'est Paris" - comme le dit Mistinguett....
Congratulation for your paintings.

Very fine!

This is perfect in composition: the blue-grey rooftops; the Eiffel tower softly painted; the mysterious windows where unknown lives are on-going. I will now imagine what those lives might be as I often did in Paris.

I love the wet shiny rooftops

nice to see a totally different scene...you must have enjoyed painting this ?love the light on the roof

"I Love Paris in the Spring Time..." - especially Paris when it's painted by Julian!

Hope you have a nice stay with Ruth.
