Tijucas

*




 Tijucas, a late morning in July, oil on card, 21 x 24.3 cm






Tijucas, dunes, scrub, oil on card, 20 x 24 cm






The sky  in Tijucas has this dense thickness, even on winter days, This enforces the sense one has of the place as being utterly lost, as do the weird, seedy residents. It reminds me very much of the Isle of Sheppey, that peculiar and desolate part of Kent.

The first painting revisits a scene which I depicted a few years back. It is a great pleasure to revisit places, to see how one responds anew. Both pictures are very much under the influence of Boudin.
