I love big match Saturdays. The sea is usually deserted. However our Springbok Rugby team played the All Blacks and their ref in the morning (my big match rant – (o: ) . So the sea was packed. But it was a beautiful evening and I had a couple of good waves and chatted with my friend Chris. Then I shot out and got my stuff just in time to do a quick, one-wash painting of the mountains. I caught the last light. The evening was chilly and the paint did not dry at all so I could not put any further glazing. But there it is.
On the sea I had been squinting into the setting sun so did not look in the that direction. But when I packed up my kit I looked around in the direction of table mountain and the golden sky just took my breath away. There was no time to paint it so I remembered the colours and want to paint what I saw.
