The digital protea

Putting the brushes away for a while and trying some digital art.  It’s still art, and just as much work, or effort, to finish. : )

The nice part of digital art, is that you can create one picture and then with a bit of ‘cutting and ‘pasting’ create many more with very little effort.

Even a bunch or flowers, just like that…

Kirstenbosch, a protea and an exhibition

Two weeks ago we had a picnic in Kirstenbosch botanical gardens. Driving from this side of Cape Town, we were surprised on that side with really cold misty weather. We used the picnic blankets around us and not under us… But we had a walk to find the proteas. Only a few left-overs, it’s not their flowering season now.

And yesterday we went to Kirstenbosch to attend an exhibition opening. The SASA merit exhibition. And I met my blogfriend Stephen Quirke after two years of visiting each others blogs! That was nice. He was one of the invited artists for the exhibition. Well done Stephen!

This sketch was bought by a company to be used on a label.
