Painting a Cafe in Paris...

Guest Painter for the day is Donna of Donna's Art

A couple weeks ago I spoke to Donna after she read that I was taking EVERYONE on a VIRTUAL trip for the month of Paris... she told me that she has never been to Paris but would love to go and paint a cafe or two... soooooooooo... I said GREAT... let's go to Paris together VIRTUALLY and paint a cafe... you find us a cafe and we will go there VIRTUALLY and paint... so here is our cafe...Of course... there has to be a little FUN... sooooo before I show you our paintings... let me tell you about our outing on a PERFECT day in Paris... we grabbed our portable easels, brushes and paints and headed out on to the streets of Paris... We started out painting with this group... however... they kindly asked us to leave... they said we laughed and giggled and talked too much... so we packed up our stuff and moved on...We head over to Montmartre... the site of many painters... welllllll... it was fun and exciting at first... but it was too crowded and people were always looking over our shoulders... plus we were getting tired of standing... we forgot our cute little fold up stools... soooooo...

I found this location (painting available via Fifi's Etsy Store) to sit comfortably... order cafe cremes and yummies... andddddddddddd it just happened to be across the street *WINK* from the cafe Donna found for us to paint...Settled into this cafe... Donna and I set about painting happily... and here is Donna's version of the cafe she picked for both of us to paint... HER PAINTING is FAB and available in Donna's Etsy Store...

And... here is my version of the same cafe (painting available via Fifi's Etsy Store) ...

Isn't it FUN to see two different versions of the same location... each with their own perspective... I soooooo ENJOYED our painting together in Paris... Donna, we should REALLY do this AGAIN in PARIS... thank you so much for painting with me!!!

Tomorrow... I turn my blog over to Laura of Under the Sheets-Shhh... be sure to stop by... she has a memorial Outdoor Wednesday in Paris planned for us!

It is interesting to me how different the perspective is when both painting the same picture. Both are very lovely. I love the bicycle in yours fifi!

Fun post. Love the paintings. Its interesting to see how each person will paint or even photograph a certain subject. They will bring something of themselves in it. This was fun to see. Both equally wonderful.

How fun to see two different versions! That's the charm in art; everyone has a different take on it. They are both gorgeous!
