My Monet!

This was another project that we had in Margie's class. To copy an old Master! What a lot of fun I had and learned so much! Not too tacky!? I still want to fade the features on both faces a bit.

Wow, Carol, this is beautifully painted! You have captured the "Monet feel" perfectly.

This is my favorite Monet painting, you did a wonderful job on it. I recently used a Sargeant's painting for inspiration, I didn't want to copy it exactly but it was fun to do. I'll be back.

Thanks Barbara. The project was to copy as exactly as we could but of course this is impossible! Trying to get under the skin of another artist! I have often wondered just how "artistic" the people who do reproductions are.

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.

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!
