Coutras, France, 15" x 11".
Sometimes the simplest of scenes sort of turn out okay. When I first looked at this scene, I thought no - there's little interest here and too many horizontal lines. But then I thought introduce a car, some pedestrians, connecting with those horizontals and it can be a bit more interesting. Plus with watercolour, when you're laying down a wash, introduce extra colours in there so it's not too boring. The pedestrian crossing and tyre marks add some extra dimensions to the composition.
