Municipal council & Library Simonstown



After much deliberation here is what I painted on this day in May. Simonstown has so many secrets and views, this one took some composing and not enough planning, or mind for perspective. Perhaps I should invest some time in that, as it helps, when observing from life, buildings especially, which is often the subject outside. I was lucky to have had only the very slightest drizzle at a point but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed this, sitting outside on a day like today, near to my home.


Morning life

Here is one of yesterday's efforts, it was a struggle! This was the last long pose of the day, and arguably a difficult subject, especially for this type of treatment. I learn allot at life drawing, it is wonderful to have the opportunity to go these days.
