THE HEAT OF THE GAME – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1090810(1)

This was from a set of photos I have had kicking around for a while. I did an unsatisfactory watercolour with them a while back, but thought I might try with acrylic.

The place is  Racou, which on the Mediterranean coast, nestling at the foot of the Pyrenees. It is a cluster of beach houses built in the nineteen thirties with restaurants, shops, bars and a few hotels tacked on. It is at the end of Argeles sur Mer, but it keeps itself fairly independent, even declaring independence at one stage. The boules club – if it is called that in these parts – is pretty central to the place, set at the end of the very busy car park. Many of the beach houses have been owned by the same family for generations, so they all come and have a game in the afternoon and between games chew the fat.
