Pictures of the Cape Peninsula

Here are two photographs taken relatively close to home. We had spent the day in the town of Hermanus, about one and half hours drive from Cape Town and were returning via the coastal route around False Bay. The sun was setting in an “angry” looking sky providing a wonderful and unusual view of the southern part of the Cape Peninsula in silhouette between the dark waters of the bay and the sunset painted sky.

Cheval Voyeur Farm

The last few "quickies" from Cheval Voyeur Farm.


This was a quick oil while there was still quite a lot of water around.


A charcoal sketch done while hiding in the bushes trying to keep out of the sun!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.

Centre of the Book

We spent two Tuesday mornings in the Company Gardens in central Cape Town. The first day I tried to paint this and failed dismally. The next week I used charcoal in an attempt to capture the architectural beauty of the building. Now I must try to paint it again! I love charcoal!
