Frank Will
Honfleur

About

Frank-Will’s knowledge of architectural design is balanced with a fine perception of daily life in this well-defined watercolor of Honfleur, the seaport on the estuary of the Seine River in Normandy. The location of Honfleur is very special, giving painters over the years ready-made subjects. There are the splendid sunsets with far away boats. There is the busy harbor with fishing vessels going back and forth beneath ever-moving clouds. There is the town with rows of ancient dwellings and structures lining walkways and squares. There are the crowds browsing through the city marketplace. Best of all there is the celebrated light of Honfleur which owes much to the estuary. It is an ever-changing light which enhances the greys cast by the ever-moving clouds. The frequent rains moving onto the coast brighten the blue-grey slates and colorful cobblestones throughout the town. The elusive and ever-moving light explains why painters of the town mostly used watercolors. The use of watercolor - and Frank-Will was a watercolor master - allows swift execution which grasps the fleeting aspects of light.
