Today I brought my son Ethan in to Stellenbosch to write a Maths exam. We had a coffee at Häzz Coffee Shop and then he went off to write. I was going to do some work on my laptop but was attracted by a lovely composition of white walls, wrought iron fencing (why do I take these things on?) and a mixture of palms and strelitzias. So I took out my watercolour kit.
As I started to sketch the scene these two ladies came to sit at the table in front of me. And them someone parked a bakkie with a canopy in the middle of the scene.
The ladies sat chatting till I had almost finished and as I started on the background the driver took his truck out of the way. How often does this happen? It was a gift.
I also met a local artist called Wolko who had a dreadful accident that damaged the left side of his brain but has been substantially healed by God.
All in all a good morning .
This painting is watercolour on Fabriano Hot Pressed and is 250x230mm.
