Champs Elysées watercolor 40 x 29cm by Yukihiko Hama

¥55,000

The author's works often capture the streets of Paris, and this work is no exception.

Vibrant colors and gentle lines depict a corner of a famous Parisian street.

What is depicted in the center of the screen is what appears to be a building on the Champs-Elysées, and people are depicted gathering in front of it. The greenery of the trees adds to the vibrancy of the streets, and each window of the buildings reflects the hustle and bustle of city life.

In this work, the artist captures the energy of the city as well as the unique atmosphere of the place. The bright colors and free brush strokes capture the dynamism of everyday life on the streets of Paris, conveying the charm of the place to the viewer.
