This view is on my walk home from the city center, and I fell in love with the late afternoon light. Often by this point in both the day and the trip home, though, I'd be too tired to stop and paint. I'd just pick up bread in my favorite bakery across the street and keep going. Finally, though, I got there with time and energy to paint.
I also did a second small and quick one for Dune, my four year old roommate (once my hosts got back from Italy). He loves Sacre Coeur.
