Here's the first painting that resulted from the drawing I did in the last entry.  The greatest contrast in values is right around the focal point which is the cafe and its umbrella.  I could perhaps have made it a bit more colorful, a task I might take up the next time I try this scene. But the interlocking shapes and the values were my first concern.

Look around your town for interesting restaurants, cafes, and architecturally interesting buildings.  If you're shy, take a photo, or if you're brave enough set up en plein air!
