Beach Huts

Sand - 14" x 21" - Watercolour
I like these municipal beach huts on the Cherbourg peninsula. They remind me of the Atlantic Wall - Hitler's WWII coastal defences. Not pretty, not even in keeping with seaside ambiance, but they will outlast most other beach huts (probably not one of the main things in their favour), and give a nice, solid surface to lean on while dusting the sand off your feet.
