Well the year is off to a good start. I have started working through “Walking in this World” by Julia Cameron to try to deal with the frazzle of last year. Three pages a day, an artist date once a week and a walk. Well today I went out to the coast just this side of Koeel Bay for a walk and to take some photos. There was a hot dry wind blowing and the sea sparkled in blue and green. A great stroll.
I sat and painted a watercolour of view looking towards Rooiels before walking back to the car. Here is the view:
Here is the drawing:
So there we go. I am pleased with this as a start to 2010. I am not big on new-year resolutions but I am keen to put 2009 behind me and prepare my soul, my body my business and my watercolour world for this new year. And just for that here is the view up the coast towards Gordon’s Bay, from the path down to the sea from where I parked – mooi ne?:
I have painted the rocky bay in the lower foreground a few times and tucked away in the shadow on the right there is a fresh water fall which fills a small pool. There is a couple fishing and crayfishing on the rocks.
