This is adjacent to the red roofed church at Cap Malheureux.
Traders are set up here because of the large number of tourist in this area. The two traders are serving some coconut water to two German tourist. I love the way that the artist captures the feel of the island in this typical scene. Local Mauritians have a tough life and selling local things such as coconuts are a way to make a living. The local people speak Creole and fluent French and English. Greetings will always be in French. The colors in this watercolor painting is fresh and vibrant.
It is an A3 painting showing a typical Mauritian scene.
This small village has a real paradisiac setting with its beach and its fishermen moving about. The area is made of a few private villas and shelters a marine cemetery, a Hindu temple and the famous red-roofed Chapel of Notre-Dame Auxiliatrice, which is found on many postcards and on all tourists’ guides.
