Watercolors of France

Walking the streets of Paris with a camera and fortified with a croissant or two and a cafe au lait, Richard Ewen takes photographs of the magnificent store window displays and the reflections on the glass surfaces of the street life outside. Indoors Ewen takes random pictures of food and drink on cafe and restaurant tables. In his studio from these captured moments he creates paintings in watercolor and acrylic that reveal the hidden details of life in Paris that many people experience but few notice. The paintings are colorful and complex and reflect the many facets of city life in Paris.
