Manuel Amado regularly returned to the seaside in his paintings, and he also included the sea in several of his series.
A constant presence, the tents and striped awnings, whose stakes and tarpaulins with blue and white stripes constitute vertical elements in counterpoint to the parallel lines of sand, sea and horizon. They are ephemeral architecture on an unsteady sand floor regularly painted, as if stirred by feet, but without trace of footprints.
