Shark Feeding Time at the Two Oceans Aquarium

Last weekend we were lucky enough to have two complementary tickets to the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town. Sunday afternoon is the time when the sharks, turtles and rays in the predator tank are fed. These are a few photographs taken under trying conditions, low lighting levels, fast moving subjects and extremely thick acrylic walls of the tanks, which reflect the camera flash back into the lens.






Thank you Yvonne for the tickets! A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon! We had forgotten what a brilliant Aquarium it is.

Cheval Voyeur Farm

The last few "quickies" from Cheval Voyeur Farm.


This was a quick oil while there was still quite a lot of water around.


A charcoal sketch done while hiding in the bushes trying to keep out of the sun!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.

Centre of the Book

We spent two Tuesday mornings in the Company Gardens in central Cape Town. The first day I tried to paint this and failed dismally. The next week I used charcoal in an attempt to capture the architectural beauty of the building. Now I must try to paint it again! I love charcoal!
