REMY’S CAFE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

This is a view of my step-brother and his wife’s cafe in St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex (on the south coast of the UK). I once posted a sketch I had done of it and decided to give them a more finished version.

The orange awning on the outside gives a great counterpoint to the cooler colours of the interior. Also the art deco decorations of the window and door make a great subject matter in themselves, though they are a bugger to draw.

The shop was once a dairy and has a decorated plaster ceiling and black and white chequered floor tiles on the outside along with other features.

John, my step brother, is stood talking to a customer by the doorway replete in his pork-pie hat.
