Red, black and a medium mix for the red squares on my chromatic black painting. The blue squares have blue added to the black and yellow is mixed with that to create the green squares. The studio technique, used by Ad Reinhardt in his black paintings. Using acrylics, I didn’t get the absolute matt finish of his paintings, however it still provides an interesting background to my brightly coloured, Rhenosterveld recycled plastic butterflies.

Rubber legs struggling to keep me vertical on my run along the Estuary. With rain that meant I didn’t have to look for puddles to stomp through. MTB through the Forest, stunning after the rain, if a tad muddy.
Harbour Town, alive with the Knysna Extreme Triathlon. Totally nuts.
Saltbush mark-making a mess. Keeping the colours clean the priority on the recycled plastic water bottle butterflies. Without focus, a chunk of my thumb, cleanly sliced. Strapped up as of its undergone major surgery. A tad painful.
