GATE KEEPERS

Saturday 15th September 2018

 The grapes here are delicious; I bought this homegrown bunch from an old lady sitting on the pavement surrounded by a few plastic crates of tomatoes and green beans.

Market day today so I walked up to the Plaza Major. It was quite quiet, but I bought my fruit and vegetables and then a trip to the supermarket for household stuff.

There was quite a gathering of Brits outside the plaza cafe plus an Argentinian who grew up in London and a recent arrival from Quebec. Cafe con leche all round! It poured with rain but stopped after a few minutes and remained dry for the rest of the day.

I’ve run out of paper and am now using the corrugated cardboard covering the studio floor. I’ve applied a layer of fibre reinforced wall-filler! I’m hoping for a sort of fresco effect... mmm. Sounds unlikely. I’ve start to experiment using a Majolica-ware palette.
