en Plein Air - Hout Bay Harbour




These are some of the views from our en plein air Tuesday morning sessions. Many paintings get recycled but every now and then there are some that I want to keep. For the moment anyway.

Hout Bay Harbour is home to the famous Snoekies fish shop. Last week I bought some Kablejou there and cooked it for supper. It was the best fish I think I have ever tasted! Next week that will definately be a stop for me before going home after our usual morning painting.

Absolutely fantastic, Carol. You didn't show me the second one and I love it! And seeing Amy - I am making plans to join you.

Beautiful Carol, you really handled the foggy misty view great. I would keep this too.

I love the way you captured the misty day. Your colors are nice and subtle. A lovely painting.

Thanks Liz ... I will believe that when I see it! but please do, you have no idea what you are missing out on!

Thanks for the visit Barbara. Funny, I always land up painting misty scenes, must be a hidden meaning somewhere there!

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!
