Cafe Envie in the French Quarter, New Orleans;20×16;oil;01/15

An on site (en plein air) oil painting done of a popular coffee house in

New Orleans' French Quarter. It was a morning painting with the side in shadow.

It was very difficult to get the perspective right with the ten windows, a two-point perspective, I believe.

I included the diverse clientele on the outside. It took me four trips to paint the scene and work in the

studio to resolve the colors, architecture, and perspective. Commission sale. Painting by Al Champagne.
