Stunning contrast and you have created and a lovely sense of depth.

Totally agree, terrific light and shade and love the reflective light on the chairs.

As always, your wonderful depiction of strong sunlight and bold colours make this an exciting and accomplished painting.

LOL, I recognize him! Seriously though, super painting. The sunlight and dark shadows are excellent as always and a clever touch was to paint the table cloth like that so it drapes over the edge of the table. I'd have just painted the whole thing in the same orange colour and lost the movement that you've achieved together with the way that you've painted the waiter who's really gripping the edge of the cloth. His posture is good. Love the parting in his hair as well!

Superb piece, as usual, Jospeh - excellent depiction of light and atmosphere.

another super watercolour Joseph, full of contrast as usual.. The figure is well painted with a feeling of movement.

It's all vivacious and believable without being in any way 'literal'. Let me limit my compliments to the highlighted hand which alone would have done it for me.

Thank you all for your great comments again. Kim - feel free to compliment as much as you like :-)

Really nice work Joseph - I like how the colour of the tablecloth is reflected in the waiter's face.

I just think your watercolours are great. I know that is lazy, just to sum them up together. However, it is the use of light and dark and the saturated colours which I admire.

Oh those darks and saturated hues. Stunning!
