I enjoy photography and often use it as a means of capturing a scene that I might want to paint later on. Port Elizabeth is known as South Africa's windy city. The weather can change in a moment and very often the wind will blow dark misty clouds in from the sea. One afternoon I grabbed the camera and took a photo of these dark clouds rolling in over my home.
I did not think I would want to paint this scene, until I looked at the photo. I finally got to paint it today.
