Red Umbrellas

Honfleur Afternoon,6 x 6 " oil on archival panel ©2013, Fay Terry

 This is one I have been wanting to paint for quite awhile because of, you guessed it, the red umbrellas.
It is also a scene from a memorable afternoon when we took the train from Paris to the closest point near Honfleur,  then  a short bus ride to this bustling maritime town.
There was much we wanted to see and we knew the buses stopped running early on Sunday, but we planned to take a taxi back to the train station. When the time came to leave, around 4:00, we learned that the taxis were unavailable after 4 pm. Just as it was looking hopeless, two really nice German guys about to climb into the last taxi, offered to share with us.  Thank goodness we didn't miss our dinner reservation back in Paris!


  1. Glad you made it! Hope the dinner was delish in Paris! Nice piece by the way. I can understand theattraction to the is composition. Well done.

    1. I appreciate your nice comment, Giselle. Now that this challenge is over, I want to stop by and see what you've been painting.

  2. Nicely done Fay. Can't wait to see tomorrows...More France I hope..They are terrific
