Made from my original painting, this cafe scene features vivid colors and charming details that are uniquely captured in watercolor. Since I first travelled to Paris, I've had an affinity for the patisseries and the art of baking that only the Parisians can inspire.

Painted in a loose, informal style with a touch of pen and ink to accentuate the details, the charm and je ne sais quoi of Paris shines through. I used vibrant pops of color to evoke a feeling of light and movement.

Les Petits Gâteaux along with its companion print, French Patisserie may be purchased as an 8×10, 11x14, or 16x20 here.
