The Colors of Green

Shot 12 June 2017 at 11:05AM between Bredasdorp and Napier in the Western Cape, South Africa. The influence of the sky colors is amazing and changes sometime with the second (more or less 😉 ). It’s wonderful to see that other photographers from the region are also discovering the surrounding landscapes. These are a true source of inspiration.

Hermanus FynArts

Every year there is this art festival in Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa. Plenty of sculptures along the Cliff Path but not this year. It’s a meager outdoor exhibition but the few sculptures I saw are interesting. The event, including some concerts, workshops, etc. started last Thursday and ends this Sunday 18 June.

More worthwhile is to visit the different art galleries. Their level has gone up significantly in the past few years and some of them can match themselves with the best in South Africa and abroad. There are 11 of them (if I’m not mistaken) and all within walking distance. Four artists from my village have work on display in Van Rossouw Frans Mulder), Originals (Ulrich Riek), Hermanus Gallery (Yvonne de Wit) and Walker Bay Gallery (me).

Here a few images of the outdoor event.

 

Unus Mundus

Somebody told me the other day that the average painter applies 6 to 7 layers before a painting is finished. I just applied the 75th layer to ‘Unus Mundus’ (One World) and still it’s far from ready. Layers, in my case, are photographs, drawings, textures, digital in-paintings, etc.

Guess I have another 30 to 40 layers to go. Plus some patching here and there.

The imaginary will be printed and framed in the size 180x120cm for a permanent exhibition (until sold) in one of the better art galleries in the Western Cape, South Africa. And there will be only one print available for their clients appreciate (and pay for, I hope 😉 ) exclusivity.

How does my layering work? In the past I already made a youtube with a very simplified example. See: The Meta Selfie
