Blossoms on the tree outside the luxurious room at Nyati, Addo Elephant Park.
Fireflies and stars. The distance hoot of owls. The melody of the Night Jar. Silence. The hills, distance shadows. The great elephants, at one with the dark.
A grey patch too dark, which I decided to let dry before correcting as I wanted to keep the Spring colours clean. It also gives the ridges of paint created for the branches a chance to hold their shape before I trash them again.
Permanent Carmine (Classico), Van Dyk (No. 40) Rose Madder Carmine
Permanent Magenta (Daler Rowney) and Van Dyk (No. 48) Violet Rose Madder for the flowers.
