Today’s effort.  I used a limited, Anders Zorn palette of Ivory Black, Titanium White, Vermilion and Yellow Ochre then went back in and added a few highlights using a slightly-expanded palette of Naples Yellow, Cobalt Blue and Alizarin Crimson.  I was going for a slightly understated look and I got it.

This is a pretty famous intersection on the Left Bank.  There’s a stop on the Paris Underground at Rue du Bac and that’s where Emily and I caught our ride up to Montmartre.
