A seagull that I sketched from my digital camera with watercolours and waterbrush - it started off well, but the cheap sketchbook paper didn't take to much working of the paint - I might try this on better paper.
Just the loveliest day in Kalk Bay - a fishing harbour which still barely supports a few local fishermen going out to sea in their boats. I hope and pray that the big trawlers on the horizon don't put them out of business for once and for all - a fate that's befallen many a similiar seaside industry.
We were inside the restaurant - 'Livebait' - and had a great view of the harbour and its activities. The two fishermen on the bottom left having their lunchtime 'dop' of sweet muscadel wine. I guess they'd finished fishing for the day!
The opposite side of the bay where waves crash right up against the Brass Bell - another restaurant that's been there as long as I can remember. I believe nobody wants to insure them any more against water damage!
