The stairs

After visiting the Musée des beaux-arts in Rouen, Normandy, France and admiring the art of Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Renoir and lots of other masters, we picnicked in the park in front of the museum from where I spotted this view. I watched the people climb the stairs and chose the actors for my painting. The young lady caught my attention. I knew it would be risky to paint her in because a delicat figure like that has to be perfectly put.
