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.

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.
