Daily paining: Christmas market in Berlin


20 x 20 cm, oil on stretched canvas, ©2010 Julie Galante. [SOLD]

I am having a lot of fun playing around with Christmas markets as a subject. This image is from a Christmas market I visited last week in Berlin. I like the almost cartoony feel to this one – it seems right, given how idealized and unreal the markets feel sometimes. It can feel like walking around on a movie set, but better, because the roasted chestnuts and hot mulled wine are real.
