In this timelapse video I do a watercolor cityscape painting. The location is Dieppe, Normandy.
I was scrawling through the city, looking for interesting compositions of buildings and objects, atmosphere and human activity. I didn't find a good subject right away. I guess I was looking too hard. All I saw were obstructions. Cars or ugly road signs blocking the view or things were just too complex.
"There is nothing here." I thought. On the way back to my car I walked around this church and I saw this man sitting beneath the tower... relaxing in the sun. Snap!
Mental picture, phone picture and straight off to the studio to paint this.
