Thanks very much...........I was a graphic artist some years ago and lettering was part of my job and I still enjoy doing it. The lettering on this one got done first as it was the bit I most enjoyed.

Haaaa La douce France :)
La Provence est très jolie and you've made a marvelous work with this restaurant
and the strong light, we feel the warm weather :)
You were close Aix en Provence, it's a beautiful city and close to the beautiful
blue sea "La méditerranée"

I used to be a commercial artist many years ago and in those days, we did all the finished artwork by hand, including the lettering.
I suppose one doesn't actually lose a skill, so I find lettering quite easy.

Freda this is awesome! I can't believe how many difficult elements you managed to fit in one scene. All the crazy different perspective lines, the text, combined with the freedom of the beautiful plants. My favorite aspect is the bike and it's shadow, it could easily be it's own painting. Anyone that is too lazy to pick up a brush and try painting needs to see this, and how much work you have put into it. Great job as always. :D

Actually the bike got added later.
Yes, crazy perspective, Gordes is on of the French hill towns and this restaurant was nearly at the top of the hill so was built on the slope in the road.
