Eglise Saint-Jacques watercolor demonstration

In this time-lapse 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 of to the studio to paint this.
