Diary of an Adventure

Harbour Town Adventures

Thunder and lightning over the distant mountains. Tempranillo from Baleia Estate excellent with the bolognese sauce, which I managed to keep off my shirt!
Portrait of Johannes completed with a few touches of pure white to catch the light. The burnt sienna colour from Charvin giving the painting a rich luster. The contours of his face responding well to the cooler grey of ultramarine blue and burnt umber. The portrait is defined by his red hat which I did with an underpainting of French yellow. The rose and raw Sienna mix balanced the face with the yellow tones of the red hat.
Hugh and Clare cooked a Walnut and mushroom, with a hint of lemon zest, crusted chicken in the Weber. A recipe from Taste that was delicious. Butternut and goats milk cheese salad sprinkled with pomegranate seeds looked great and for a salad was pretty good.
Even the wind seemed to settle and enjoy the jazz, with the blue neon lighting of the turbine creating a perfect backdrop. The wine certainly seemed to flow easily.
Struggled through the soft sand and rocky sections of the forest. The bicycle, my legs and my bum all going in different directions. This after the climb up Simola turned my legs to pulp.
