Last year, someone in our municipality had a rush of blood to the brain and decided that The Pipe needed a walkway to the beach. So they got one of their friends – no I mean – they put the job out to tender and the contractor got busy.
Once I settled down I got some good likenesses.
It is 180x280mm on 185gm Arches CP.
I had another long and enlivening chat at the pipe on Friday and had a chance to do this painting of the folks on the beach before having a quick goof and going home. That is a word from my school days – “hey guys, lets go for a goof” (a swim).

Last week at this time I was driving around Meadowridge, to find the venue for a watercolour demo. The group was the Constantiaberg Art Society and I had offered to do the demo. And what a friendly group of people they were. Thank you so much all of you for the warm welcome you gave me. I have not been painting much this year, as my lack of posting here attests and I must say I felt a little rusty. But I decided to put this to the group and suggested that I would find a photo on my lap-top and paint from that, using my outdoor kit. ”Lets all pretend we are down at The Pipe”.
So here is my first piece. I guess if I had been feeling more confident I would have done a single painting but allowed myself this start:
this was on 300gm Arches 370×280. There is some fun stuff going on in the sky but overall mmm. Ja well no fine!
