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

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
