Week 41 - Composition: Color Theory

“It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly, and I hung up my old water-proof on the coat rack and put my worn and weathered felt hat on the rack above the bench and ordered a cafe au lait. The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write.” - Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

The location and script are classic Hemingway, but the intense, almost cartoon-like color, especially the greens and reds are 100% Jean-Pierre Jeunet
