What a wonderful day with the Port Elizabeth artists. An extremely talented group of women and also a beginner – Jenny who produced a spectacular beginning. I remember my first little painting and it was filled with dry, terrified brush strokes.
The magic that only water colour can produce is the art of allowing the water to do the work and watch the properties of the paints create their own incredible mixes and movement.
Thank you for the warmth and kindness and to ARTEC – Epsac Gallery in Bird Street, Port Elizabeth for hosting the day. Also many thanks to Robyn Roberts for my lunch and to all the ladies for the nummy treats. It was Lita’s Marais’s birthday so we had cake and song.
A big thank you to Lil and John Haigh for giving me their flat to stay in. PE I love you x
