Winter in the Winelands – Delheim

This article was originally posted on 12 August 2007. We picked up a typo and corrected it but Blogger refuses to allow the time and date of posting to be reset to the original so here it is again.

Thursday’s public holiday, National Woman’s Day, provided the perfect excuse for a trip to Delheim, one of the oldest wine estates in Cape Town, for lunch. A traditional South African babotie (curried mince with a custard like topping) complimented by their excellent Gewürztraminer hit the right spot and put us in the mood to try to capture the winelands in a winter mood.



And just for fun, something a little abstract.

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!
