Painting out has started again with a vengeance! I have been trying to finish off my painting out work in the studio and starting to get ill with the smell of my oils. In desperation I tried to go back to acrylics but nearly landed up in tears. I phoned Catherine at Art Source in Observatory and she said that they had just received small starter packs of water soluble oils from Reeves and that I really should try it out as they were only R65. Well, this morning I tackled a photo of Baillie's cottage that I took on the first Monday paint out. Oh what a pleasure to be able to fiddle and fuss and create. I love them! I must say that I did miss using a medium and I must get some of that. It is water soluble as well with no harmful solvents! What do you think??????
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.
