Sandcastle & Speedboat, 1960

Superficially inocuous & lazy, this drawing nonetheless makes me think of Meursault on the beach. (Where's the sun?)

Blue Ocean Beach Scene, 1962

This drawing has really grown on me. Its composition is kind of dynamic, it has a Basquiat-like quality. I like the contrasts between the blue, the black & the white. A Chinese junk, a battleship, fishermen, coconut trees & a netless beach volleyball game: what's not to like?
