Brown's Extra Oil Painting

This is a painting of tourists sitting on the steps at Brown's, a bar restaurant on Queens Road in Bristol. I cropped a photograph I took late September and used it as reference material.

The Clifton area is very lively as it is closed to the university and the Bristol's City Museum and Art Gallery.

The building itself looks like a Doges Palace in Venice, but I wanted to capture the people enjoying a nice break. I may do a larger painting of the scene that includes other people around tables on the terrace.
