Cafe Study

This is done from a photo I took while driving back home from Williamsburg, VA  (well my husband was actually driving!) I was immediately drawn to the warm walls and almost teal window sills.  Only got the one shot so I made do with practically black shadows, but luckily I could make out some people that were silhouetted. I am attending a critique workshop this weekend and this is one I will take with me. Please let me know your opinions, as you know I rarely include people. This is a 12 x 16 acrylic on canvas.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
