Pencil and watercolour

This painting shows the harbour and buildings on the north west side of Port Vendres, along the eastern end of the rue du Soleil.  The harbour was rebuilt here after the Second World War.

The dominant aspect of this painting - the gentle, rippling striped reflections in the water - could compare with his recurring theme of the striations in the local rocks.
