Nyathi Series 2
Acrylic on canvas 2,1mx1m
The first 32 paintings for the Nyathi Series 2 art work are done, from our trip to Addo Elephant Park. I will do another 8 or so for greater impact.
Goukamma to Buffs trial run with Prince. Short. Fierce. Humidity in the Forest section punishing. As were the hills up the sand dunes. Only fell once, with a strip of skin torn from my arm.
Chairs, tables, doors, and windows stashed as the storms tear through, driving Prince demented.
Chef Lucy did an Anniversary dinner for us with a magic Jan Hendrik inspired Camembert and Cognac soak cake. Delicious indeed.
The abstract under-painting for the Key River Mouth inspired seascape is finished. I’m thinking of using the recycled plastic water-bottle butterflies against the background. The previous butterflies were all painted with acrylic paint, however for this one I want to try oil paint. Still using the salt-bush for the mark making on the back of the butterflies. Could be a tad messy!
