As I get into my reading for my research I am spending less time painting. This is unfortunate but I hope to be able to take some time out to paint. Last weekend we spent a night with our friends at Betty’s Bay. Another relaxing evening. The winter swell is hitting the Cape and I went out with Calvin and Jonty but was too chicken to catch any waves because they were peaking and closing out so fast. Our break at the pipe was a little easier and I had time to ride some monsters this week (for me anyway). But while in Betty’s I had a chance to paint one watercolour. And I took a video though I have not had a chance to edit it and will more than likely wait until I can do something better before I take the time to post another video on YT. Here is the painting which I left with our gracious hosts:
I was not so wild about the end result and this past week got to hectic to reflect on this so here it is now.
And here is a photo Sinead took while I was drawing. It shows how I place the video camera on a tripod in front of me. I still have to get used to working more at arms length – like Alvaro – this I feel can only be a GOOD thing – heh heh
