    Looking very serious on the seafront – whilst also blending in perfectly.

    Have a look at the picture of my mother in the seventies on the beach in the bikini she made herself!

    The car in the background is a 1955-58 Simca 90A Aronde. This was the first car owned in 1965. I recognized it immediately.

    I wonder if this photo was tinted in some way. That would explain why the woman's shoes match the umbrellas so perfectly. Also most of the tones are in orange and blue. The man is wearing blue clothes and some people in the mid-ground are wearing the same blue. Yes you certainly can see Lanvin and the Carlton Hotel.

    Simpler times… Classic looks. I love style from that time; the scallops on the umbrella, the simple chairs, the fashion, the cars…

    This is actually my friend's parents (the last time I saw them they were similarly elegant, poised, and well dressed well into their seventies?)…posted by his amazing wife; I emailed her immediately to ask if I could paint this photograph. I will send a photo when its finished!! It has beautiful perspective, with the complimentary blue and orange hues. Oh my, so excited.

    Great pic and it's Cannes alright, I know the place well. At the far end right of the pic you can see two sort of black towers.

    That's the Carlton Hotel :

    Cheers ;)

    They look square but still very "modern". Things were more layered and repressed back then and it gave people more radiant energy and style. They couldn't/didn't just let it all hang out. She knows how hot she is and her leg positioning is classic pinup. I like how his espadrilles coordinate with his trousers and shirt. ;-)
