Market Day and bands of horizontal light and dark
Tidal Gate to Porthleven Harbour in Cornwall - a bit of everything

Railway bridge and road junction - Coutras - France


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.
