Shades of Autumn

74cm by 60cm including the frame.

This painting started with a walk on a very cold Cape Town autumn evening. A new house has been built up the road from us and the owner has planted about 30 full grown trees! These leaves and seed pods were strewn on the pavement and in the road, just waiting to be painted. Hope the neighbours didn't see me bending down and collecting leaves from the gutter!

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!
