On the way home from Tshwane tonight I had a little time to sit and relax in Oliver Tambo Airport in Joburg. Carol had set me a project to do some paintings of street scenes in JHB but I did not have a chance so I did these. I am not sure I like the risk of rude people. I asked one group if they would be offended if I painted them and they were so patronising and off-hand that in the end I didn’t. I don’t suppose they had the free emotional energy for such a request. So I felt put off by the whole experience. Anyway here is the first one I did of people across the way:
And here is the second one I did after asking the group – the nearest figure is lost in my finding my balance after their response. The second figure is quite fun I thought.
