This street scene in Mapledurham is a colourful and charming watercolour. Amongst the figures in the street a young girl is playing with her hoop. The boundary walls and buildings provide the linear perspective with the spectator’s eye being drawn to the church towards the vanishing point. The trees and bushes add colour to the composition. Painted on the spot the watercolour has great freshness and immediacy.
