Fun working with glazes today. Helps to unify the painting and allows a final play. Transparent red oxide to warm up colours I painted way too cool and tone down those in the green spectrum. Using the ultramarine blue to push my darks a little more. Those handy 1 socks we all have lying around help to wipe away excess and glaze in wrong areas. #glazing
How exquisite are these colours. At a recent workshop, Eric Eatwell reminded us of the importance of working with complementary colours and to use the opposite colour to grey down.... thus finding gorgeous harmonised sophisticated colours. Use equal complementary colours and create the most divine blacks #complementarycolors #greys
What a treat to spend 2 days at a workshop by @ericeatwellart. Surrounded by the creative, generous, beautiful Eatwell family. Thank you
I love the way this piece has been hung...relatively low down... working so well to ground the space... Allowing the flamingos to dance away. Blessed to have your support and enthusiasm around my work. #artjustforyou #localartforyourhome #capetownartist #supportlivingartists
Working on her today. Been such an iffy week of no-starts in the studio. I'm here... showing up and trying to push through whatever this is. Got my coffee and some good vibes playing to get me in the focussed and creative mood. Breathe and focus
The quirky quaintness of Riebeek Kasteel (Swartland). So dreaming of visiting the open studios in August, where 2 of my favourite artists are dwelling.... Solly Smook (@sollysmook) and Jennny Parsons (@jennyparsonsart), plus many more. Went visiting there this past holiday and ate a whole lot of olives (olives coming a close second to painting). Drool worthy in many ways
Last 2 days of exhibition at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens ( ends 17th April at 4pm). This piece sold, but there are some wonderful works available by such a talented art crew.
If like me your week was a little hectic - lets revel in Sunday and enjoy the day of chillaxing!
