Although patio art primarily focuses on outdoor garden images, there are cafe patio prints which depict a different kind of relaxing area. These works are more urban than many outdoor garden images and often use emotive themes, as seen in the cafe print 'Your Usual Table' by Malcolm Surridge.
Patio prints are some of the most detailed and sensitively depicted forms of outdoor wall art. Curiously, unlike many exotic locale paintings, patio art rarely features people in their execution. Instead, patio prints rely on the emotive qualities and intimacy of these works in order to draw in the viewer and convince them that the space represented in these outdoor garden images is an area all their own. This approach is part of the reason behind this art category's popularity and effectiveness as a meditative work of art.
