My New Years Resolution, for what they are worth, was to indulge in en plein air and life drawing and painting. This I have done with a vengence. It has been an incredibly stimulating time. This is "Amy" and was done over two mornings. You know that "butterflies in the tummy" feeling? well this was one of those times. I will be adding a touch of light to the bottom left hand side where her knee is, but have just not had the time to get around to it.
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.
