I just found this painting I did while sitting on my own at Kirstenbosch. Only two of us pitched up for this Plein Air outing at Kirstenbosch. I am glad I went though. While sitting there, the cloud got heavier and heavier and it started spitting with rain. Tourists poured past and it was difficult to just focus! Isn't it wonderful to be able to create out in the midst of this wonderful world we are so lucky to live in?
SOLD Slangkop lighthouse is the tallest iron tower on the South African Coast and sits at the one end of Kommetjie. It measures 100 feet from base to the balcony and has been operational since 1919. Every lighthouse has a different frequency of flashes and this one emits four flashes every 30 seconds as it turns and can be seen for 33 sea miles. Here is an oil painting of the lighthouse from a photograph Bryan took. I would like to do a watercolour of it sometime soon.
I'm so sorry I didn't get to the outing, my days seem to overtake me and I am trying to complete three paintings here in my studio, which seem to be taking forever!
Got your comment on my wolf pic - I need to get a list of those books I need to read when I get back. See you in two weeks.
Hi Liz - great things take time! only kidding, I just have to get in the flow I guess. Colette loved this one so that is why I thought of posting it. Looking forward to your return - Fridays are very quiet without you!
