Le grand rond

This is one of the main public garden in Toulouse. It is round with a huge fountain in the middle. A nice place to breathe some fresh air those days. As usual now, I did a watercolor. sketch on location and the painting at home. I even forgot to take a reference picture, but I remain there much longer than the time of sketching and already observed this place many times. My painting came out with a much more yellow/violet combination than the sketch

Oil painting 5x10 in

Rue Croix Baragnon

 My sketch on location 

First stage of paintting
I decided to use a paper that was already tinted in violet.
 I'm not starting on such dark background usually and  that made me explore unusual contrasts.
The painting looks darker than the sketch

Oil 15x15cm

Reference picture taken the same day
