Paris Metro At Night by Charlie O'Shields

Tried a another quick little doodlewash of the Paris Metro. Started by using my ink pen with some gray washes and sort of preferred it in black and white, but decided I really wanted to try making the brass horn look like brass. It seems like every scene I try has some new material or texture that I’ve never painted before. Guess that’s going to happen a lot since I’m just starting out, and I enjoy each little challenge!

There’s always a lot of entertainment on the Paris Metro, whether you like it or not. I’m not a big fan of the accordion players as it’s both a bit cliché and insanely loud in such a confined space. Actually, a horn is pretty darn loud as well, now that I think of it, but this guy was quite good and managed to hold back from blasting us all out of the train and onto the tracks. I didn’t have any change to tip him, but he was the first train musician I would have considered supporting.
