Another Visit to the Cape Town Two Oceans Aquarium

Many thanks again to Yvonne for the tickets and for the permission to sit and paint and doodle. The Two Oceans Aquarium is a wonderful peaceful place to spend a quiet afternoon, provided there are not too many school groups arriving. It is though, tremendously challenging. Everything moves!!!! You have to look and remember!!!! Oh well, I tried! Here is a sketch of the Security guard who really wanted to be drawn! And this drawing using charcoal and watercolour penciles was done at the river walk where you can see the African and rockhopper penguins. I must add that the wonderful Volenteers who take people around and give them all the interesting snippets of information are the most highly under rated people in the organisation. Our thanks go out to them, one and all. Below is an attempt at a watercolour of the kelp forest. In the end I gave up and just gazed, oh so peaceful, I could have spent all night there. Thanks again Yvonne.

Last Day of Life Drawing

Well this was the final day of Life Drawing. Mind blowing and very addictive - I can't wait for another few sessions! We are hoping for September but have to find a venue!

and Still More Life Drawing....

You can tell that I really enjoyed myself can't you .....

More Life Drawing

Here are some more of the drawings from the second week. The second time was a lot easier. We will be hosting another workshop in September for any locals who would like to join us.
