Looking through the last few pages of my sketchbook, I found myself craving a bit of pink. Later that day I found the perfect subject: a hot pink can of Saldanha brand pilchards. I’ve wanted to paint one of these cans since I first saw them in a supermarket in Joburg. Funnily enough, the local supermarkets of Saldanha don’t carry this brand! We found this in a supermarket in Vredenburg, 8kms. away.
