Life is Fruity

South Africans have a wonderful sense of humour. Life is Fruity was a wifi password at Fern Gully where we spent the morning on Thursday

An overwhelming mission here. Painting the Valley of 1000 Hills.

The remit was to simplify a vast vista into something manageable. How to do that, thumb nail sketch, tonal painting of our thumbnail, colour selection, completed painting.

No wonder Mouse Angela opted to stay at home…

He knew what was coming.

Tonal painting

I told you it was overwhelming!

Have a good look at the reference photo, can you see where this painting is from.
