This is my favorite breakfast spot. 

Suggestions for the next attempt at doing a building gratefully accepted.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mea, it looks like a cosy place to dine. My only suggestion would be to lighten up the frames to the colour of the back windows but otherwise, it all looks good.  However, as I am inexperienced, I would wait for the more advanced artists to give their comments and advice.  Patricia

Thanks, Patricia

I tried to lighten them as I did them because I agree with you that they need to be lighter as the building goes back.  Gotta try again.

Oh, the sky in the original is much darker than it showed up in the photo.

The restaurant is the one portrayed in the Adam Sandler movie, "Fifty First Dates."  It gets royalties every time the movie is shown!


We go there every Saturday morning at 7AM.  On my way there in a few minutes.  Only three minutes from my house.

Hi Mea,
Use your artistic license and exagerate the perpective, get closer to the building and change your viewpoint to make use of the perspective to give depth and interest in the picture. If you're working from a photograph get creative and move the building around on your canvas for more impact.
Buildings are fun I think because of the perspective effects.

Thanks, Brian.  I will redo it with the proper perspective at a later date.  Thanks for giving me the "vanishing point."

Natalie - Thanks for your comment.
