Mona Lisa Restaurant

Painted for DPW's Crowd Challenge from a photo Carol Marine took in Germany.
In painting this challenge, I added more color to the clothing,
removed the cigarettes from the hands of the many smokers,
and thinned the crowd a little.
I also left off the lovely windows and flower boxes
that ran across the top of the restaurant.
I felt they competed too much with the subject - the people.
