Evening on Montmartre
About this artwork
An evening on the lively streets of Montmartre. Corner cafe with outdoor dining, pedestrians on the sidewalk, and cars and scooters on the small cross streets. Rich palette with royal blue and purples contrasted with bright pops of yellow. Painterly brushwork. This fun neighborhood has retained its artistic atmosphere from the time when the Impressionists painted its streets, says Oksana Johnson. Just wandering around during a warm summer night and watching people talk, laugh, and share delicious meals is a lot of fun. But trying to convey Montmartre's magical charm with paints and brushes is a very special experience.
