3rd Attempt: Cafe Navona

This is at the ugly adolescent stage, and yet not that far off from getting done. Got too picky too soon, before some of the larger things were resolved. Too much detail in the middle ground folks, when they should really only be vague shapes supporting the front 3 figures. Color also needs some attention, but not sure what. Let's see if I can pull something out of this.

Cafe Navona on 2nd go-around

Just walking through, picking out negative shapes, trying not to work too hard at it. I am always surprised at the colors things end up; I certainly did not intend to use quite so much purple or for this to be a cool painting. But since this is a warm-up practice piece, I can't be worrying about all that. My goal is to aim for a fuss-free application, put it down an leave it alone and move on.
