A Windswept Beach in the Cape Point Nature Reserve.

My first ever entry into a photographic competition (Sunday Argus) and I am a runner up! My word what a surprise! Here is the picture I entered.


The big problem is that the competition organisers will only take photo's that are 1 MB or more and I have a baby camera that does not take photos that size. I don't know if they will accept any more entries from me. I will be e mailing them to ask.

When the competition started the weekly prize was a weekend away, which I was after, but they seem to have stopped that and now give away a dinner for two at the Blowfish Restaurant. Perhaps they should give a camera as a prize instead of the dinner for two!

Funnily enough only last week I finished a painting of the very same photograph! Here is a photograph of the painting.

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!
