Yesterday was long and interesting. And by the end of it I looked forward to a good surf when I took my boys down to the Son Surf School.
The Pipe was sullen, wild and cold, with swell coming from all direction and an on-shore wind. I went out and sat at the back, watching the waves crash in angry, milky brown piles but found they were too fast and hollow for me. The short-board guys were having a great time though. Eventually I decided to go in. I had one lame wave and that was it.
I changed, got my stuff out of the car and set up just as the school was coming up the beach. So again I had little time but did a painting.
The cooler weather means the washes don’t dry so fast and I am getting back to having to work in one single, wet wash. Which is lekker.
I found myself holding my brush differently – right at the back – like Alvaro C. mmm – interesting – that is from working with the video camera.
Today being Saturday I am hoping to edit my last video and get it up here.
Let’s see what the day holds…
