This Is the most photographed (and perhaps now one of the most painted) cafes in Vienna.
The light is so dim I needed to wait for my eyses to adjust before I could start painting. This is a very popular cafe and finding a seat can be a challenge at times. I chose to paint one figure under the light and waited for people to leave to paint the surrounding spaces. This was painted in oil 9 x 12 inches over an oil abstract (left over paint that had dried) so that is why all the warm reds and alizarine colours pop through. I really liked this place in spite of the clouds of cigarette smoke.
