His painting seems to have a "fish-eye" lens look, which I like. Did you pause for a while and watch him paint?
Did you go into 'Browns' for lunch? The word 'Brasserie' suggest a possibility of three things -- maybe a micro brewery or a French restaurant and/or, since this is probably in the UK, perhaps just a restaurant. Which was it Barbara? I really like the architecture of the building.

Yes, I liked it, too.....we watched him for a little while, and like painters tend to be when they start, he seemed oblivious to being watched.....we didn't go to Browns' for lunch, although they do 'brunch' and so on...we opted for a new Italian which was lovely!! Incidentally, Browns converted the Athenaeum, formerly one of Manchester's most famous pubs but originally Parrs Bank one of the city's former opulent banking halls. The building was designed by Charles Heathcote in 1902 , a superb example of Edwardian baroque with some increasingly fashionable art nouveau detailing, particularly in the wrought ironwork...according to our friend Google :))
