Winefarm Cottage


This is now finished! I have added some highlights and thickened paint here and there but I don't think it needs much more. I think this will just be one of my freer paintings!

I like the subtle colors and the cottage. Reminds me of happy days in SA visiting Constantia and Stellenbosch farms.

Hi Jean
This is a Durbanville Wine Farm Cottage but yes, the same old Cape Style, I love it too.

Hi Carol,
This is a wonderful painting! It is so atmospheric, I love the way the sun is shining through those trees and the light on the walls of the cottage. Hope this one is on your exhibition - hoping to get to see your paintings on Monday.
Love Diane x x

Thanks Diane. This was one of those paintings that took next to no time - somehow it doesn't feel finished as so little time was involved, but I think I will spoil it if I do any more. Yes, it is at the exhibition but not framed. Will do a post on the exhibition soonest.

Thank you Barbara. It is one of my freer works but I think it does work.

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!
