Greens and yellows dominate the scene. Several figures can be found in the foreground, whilst traditional architecture covers the rear of the piece. At the furthest back is a small slither of sky, delivered in a dark blue. This composition is more up-close, concentrating on the vibrant, hectic every day life that constantly intrigued this artist. The overlapping layers of colour also help to give an impression of an over crowded street, perhaps a back street just away from a busy market. Watercolour paintings are easily identifiable by small watermarks which inevitably settle in corners of the planes of colour. With relatively little detail, Macke’s approach was well suited to this medium.
