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!

These are lovely Carol! And the sun is too much for me these days - do quick sketches from the car or from memory.

Absolutely love the horses and the water and the reflections Carol! And our mountain! Beautiful.

The charcoal sketch is charming and would make a great painting. Are you going to use it as the basis for a painting?

Hi Carol, you are really doing so well with your Plein Air painting! Perhaps you will do some larger paintings from these?
Carol said…
Hi Maree. Thank you. Yes, I cover myself with block out before going out and then wear a floppy hat and try to keep in the shade! My skin has suffered very badly from over exposure to the sun! Never tried the car though!
Carol said…
Hi Jean. Thank you and yes I was hoping to use it for a painting. This will open a whole new avenue for me - if it works!
Carol said…
Thanks Dianne. I will definately try to. I am finding it difficult to adapt from studio to outside and back again but I am sure it just takes practice.
You have really developed your skills as an artist since we first starting blogging with each other. You have a wonderful eye and wonderful skills. These are truly lovely!

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!
