This watercolour painted in Italy has the Church doorway as the focal point with powerful, emblematic architecture depicted with interpretive lines sufficient for the Classical elements to be clearly read but in an Impressionistic manner. The composition has form and colour and is bathed in the brilliant sunlight of Italy and part in shadow. The element of spontaneity has been fully integrated into the artist process in the form of the figures, each of which has individuality and each telling a human story. One has the feeling of visually eavesdropping on the conversations taking place such is the power of the emotions stirred up by the artist.
