Midi (midday) – 35 x 49 cm
an original mixed media painting by Northern Irish artist Margaret Brand.
I am always fascinated by the way in European countries everyone disappears from the streets, everything is shut for lunch and siesta. This is one such day in hot French sun and I managed to get a quick sketch while sitting in the shade.
I used collage to increase the texture and feel of the buildings. I even allowed the steeple to melt a little to convey the heat!
