Making the most of summer

Summer is elusive this year in England ("Come rain, come shine"), so it's important to make the most of it. On my way back from town centre, I stopped at the Palette Café in Queens park, had a cappuccino and painted the customers relaxing under the parasol.

The small size of the panel help to keep a synthetic approach where details are only suggested. The dappled light create interest and movement.

Here is a close-up view on the finished pochade:
