K-H's instinctive feeling for light, colour and tone is demonstrated in this luminous watercolour of a street in Grimaldi, a town close to the Franco/Italian border. The scene has freshness and immediacy, the finely depicted building bathed in dappled sunlight and the passing figures painted at speed to create a sense of movement.

The artist has maximised the qualities of watercolour to convey light and space in an impressionistic style.
