This morning I sat outside the at CJ’s for a cup of rooibos. My usual bible study group had slept in so I had time to reflect. And to paint! The fountain is in the square and last time I was there I watched the pigeons coming and going.
this painting is on Arches cold pressed and is 280 X 190 mm.
Last night I watched a short cut of Alvaro Castagnet’s Antwerp video. His work is so inspiring. He says ” See how the darks capture the light…” as he paints “the dark mysterious trains”. So in this painting I tried to capture the light with the darks. And he is so free and bold with his reds. That video is going to be my next art purchase.
When I got up to go I saw that I had not brought my wallet. There were friends of mine having breakfast inside so I asked them to pay for my tea. Then when I got out I realised I had left my wallet in the seat pocket yesterday when I went for a surf – so it was there. Silly hey?
