Our time here as suddenly come to an end. Days governed by endless beach walks, and the mesmerising movement of the sea outside the window. With the arrival of the storm front, the water of the huge seas is dark and threatening. Gone are the gentle turquoise blue swells. The wild weather an opportunity to indulge in the heady aromas of citrus, cloves, red

Thrilled that portrait of Peter ‘Come-Along’ received an Honorable Mention at the 2018 London International Creative Awards, the Professional Painting Category. This to go with its Special Merit Award for Outstanding Art from the 2019 Figurative Art Competition. Surfers, dolphins, paddlers, sup’s, runners, fisherman, walkers, families and dogs. The beach on a glorious day. The fishing fleet moving in at sunset. For my painting of

'At the Beach' Oil on canvas 20cmx20cm Small paintings from our Wilderness beach visit using Charvin colours that I haven't managed to use before. Tropical Green, deep Turquoise Blue, Bluish Parma, Provence Blue. Additional CCTV camera installed in the studio to cover all the access points, with motion alerts linked to my phone and computer. Relieved that the insurance are going to replace my MacBook and

In the studio, a mush of paintings. A small painting of the yacht opposite the studio, while the underpainting for the painting ‘Princesses for a Day’ dries and the wooden block gets its gesso primer. Sugar levels too high.

A grey from Cobalt Blue with Burnt Sienna the underpainting for the two elephants.Not sure

Time-lapse video of my 'Finger Painting' painting technique. Pink face. Beach bar look without sunscreen. Turquoise waters sparkling in the sunshine. Idyllic summer days. Conquering the corrugations. Speed definitely helping to reduce the wrist, and bum, jarring. Especially after that extra bottle of red wine! Soft sand, strategically positioned to ensure heart stopping, out of control, panic, with only empty space beyond the trail edge.

JANDRE RAATS ART STUDIOHis work is expressionistic, inspired by impressionism he sees in the surroundings he's in. http://knyslifestyle.com/jandre-raats-art-studio/ A different meal, 'Township eating' at Usatsho. Melvin prepared a three course lunch for 12 of us with the most basic of facilities. The roosterkoek with his homemade chakalaka was excellent and the chicken fillet moist. We were entertained by a kids group doing traditional dances. A

Being on the down-slope side of a corner, which is also the edge of the mountain slope is not a good place to be. Especially with loose sand and stones! The cycle up Simola and along the contours a tad beyond my bicycle handling, and fitness ability. I did weave across the road to get some king of momentum up the Simola climb. My

Oil on Canvas 90cmx60cm The beach paintings of Joaquin Sorolla are full of movement and life, capturing the innocent pleasure of children in particular. This, my inspiration for the painting of the Boy and his dog. Bold strokes, on an underpainting of Naples Yellow that pushed into the abstract expressionism boundaries for the painting. For the shadows in the painting, I used Purple Madder (Van Dyk
