This painting is from one of the photos I took on the Breede River.  The watercolour is supposed to capture the exhilaration of the speedboat and the exuberance of youth.  It needs some work but is pretty much where I want it to be.  I would like the river vegetation to dry a little before capturing the final darks on the boat.


The painting is 1500×500 mm on 600gm Arches cold pressed.



Here is the first stage – so far so good


And here is the second stage – I kind of wish I had stuck here
