Talatala. From a scene in the novel of that name by Georges Simenon. I started reading his Maigret detective stories, which can become addictive. After I had read all of those I started on his other novels. This small sketch is the result. The drunken planter and his African mistress. I don't remember now if she ends up poisoning him or if he dies some other way.
It is difficult to show bright light and deep shadow in the same picture. This may be as close as I have come.
