Paris by night L'Arc

Streetlife Paris
The painting gives an impression of the night against 22.00h on the Champs Elysees.
L' Arc the Triomphe is 54 meters high and lies at the busy Place the l' Etoile at the end of the Champs Elysees. You must ride with the car around L' Arc. The Eiffel tower are the most important historical buildings of Paris, together with the l' Arc the Triomphe.
The names of the victories of Napoleon and his 660 generals and officers stand in the L'Arc written. Under the Arc the Triomphe also lies the 'Unknown Soldier'.

Het schilderij geeft een indruk van de avond tegen 22.00h op de Champs Elysees.
L'Arc de Triomphe is 54 meter hoog en ligt aan het drukke Place de l'Etoile aan het eind van de Champs Elysees. Je moet met de auto rond L'Arc rijden al lijkt het of je er onderdoor rijd van een afstand. De Eiffel toren samen met de l' Arc de Triomphe zijn de belangrijkste historische gebouwen van Parijs. De namen van de overwinningen van Napoleon en die van zijn 660 generaals en officieren staan in de boog geschreven. Onder de Arc de Triomphe ligt ook de 'Onbekende Soldaat' begraven

This is the result/resultaat.

Acrylic on canvas 12x9.5inch (30x24cm).

Absolutely wonderful, great use of color and brushwork. Makes me feel as though I am righ there. Oh how I envy you being able to go to Paris and see these things for yourself and to experience the ambience of that wonderful city.

This reminds me of my childhood in Paris. This scene especially at night brings back happy memories. I like the way you have played with the lights, difficult to do effectively.
