After purchasing, you will receive a .zip file of:
A high definition .png image, with black lines
A high definition "faded" .png, for tracing/practice
Watercolour marks are just for showing this listing, the digital download you receive will NOT have watermarks.
HOW CAN I USE THIS IMAGE?
Use pencil crayon, wax crayons, markers, watercolour, etc. and colour to your heart's content. As the image is a .png, you could even import it into apps like Procreate to digitally colour it!
I wanted to include a faded image so that you can trace the image and practice your urban sketching, or as a workaround for watercolour.
Sadly, most printers have inks that do not play nice with water and will bleed if you apply water to it. If you want to use watercolour with this digital download, I highly recommend printing the faded image on watercolour paper and then drawing over it with a waterproof pen. This will not only give you some fun practice in urban sketching, but it will make sure your painting isn't ruined from the printer ink.
Not sure what kind of pen to use? I wrote a blog post about this with 14 common pens and inks that you can read here.
I also recommend printing on a heavier paper stock if you wish to frame this after you're done.
Please DO NOT share, resell, modify, or distribute the uncoloured image in any form.

Le Consulat Cafe of Paris | Watercolour Art Print
Regular price$22.00 CAD
30 in stock
Le Consulat Café (which translates from French to The Consulate Cafe) is a charming and quaint little cafe and bar off the beaten path at 18 Rue Norvins in Montmartre Paris.
This Parisian bar is well known to be visited by artists during the 19th century including Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh. Nowadays, it quickly becomes busy with people and tourists early in the morning and throughout the day.
The original was painted on cold-pressed watercolour paper with Daniel Smith Watercolours and carbon black India ink.
Printed using premium acid-free ink on lustre photo paper
Quality inks designed to last for 100+ years
Prints are packaged in a clear poly sleeve with hardboard backing and shipped in a bubble mailer to ensure it is protected on its journey to you.
Although I use high-quality paper and inks for the prints, it is recommended to keep them out of direct sunlight and to avoid keeping the print in very high or low temperatures. This will ensure its longevity so you can enjoy it for decades to come.
