Number nine. . . number nine. . . Forgive the Beatles reference, but they were pushing into avant garde at the time, and your painting looks that way too. By the way, in case I got it wrong, Le Pont Neuf means Bridge 9? Is that the name of the bridge or the ninth in a series of bridges you painted?

Looks cool.

Love the immediacy of this style!

Beautiful. I can really see that gracing a Parisian café! iPad?

@D Akey - I think in this case Le Pont Neuf actually means The New Bridge; neuf/neuve=new. Confusing, as it's the same word they use for nine!

I like this style, very much in line with some great masters of the first half of last century!
Fortunately, dear Tommo61 and D Akey, they also have a less confusing adjective: nouveau/ nouvelle/ nouveaux/ nouvelles to say new (depending, of course, on genre and number of the substantive)

I too love this style, so loose yet shows exactly what you wanted to convey well done:)

This painting was done on the iPad and "Le Pont Neuf" means "the New Bridge"... well it was new in the XVth century at least! This was the first bridge of Paris without houses (nowadays all of them are like this one).

Thanks for all the comments.. they encourage me to keep on explroing this style!
