Northern Cape

We just came back after a week in the Northern Cape. I grew up there, but I think we forget how cold it can be! But also very quiet and no rushing anywhere.

The painting has nothing to do with the holiday. I only wanted to finish it before we went, but couldn’t, so this afternoon I did the last touches.

Secure and content…

Early morning frost…

Satin on the paving

After the last cloth paintings, I bought a piece of satin! Then draped it over everything around the house.  And ended with this painting. I did a tutorial of how to paint drapery, you can find it here.
