I did the reference pics for ‘Shakespeare & Co Bookshop’ over a couple of days and printed them back at the apartment. It was May and the Cheeryblossoms were budding all over Paris.
This is an icon bookshop for English speaking people. It’s worth looking up their website and getting the history of it. Still run by the daughter of the early owner. Anyway, back at our apartment I got started on this painting and the many others done during my sojourn in Paris.
