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.

A very Old Cape and peaceful feel to this, Carol.

How charming!!!!! The colors are luscious. This is a beautiful painting, Carol.

Hi Jean Thank you. The architecture is actually quite difficult to get right. It is often too wide or too narrow! Lots of practice needed!

Carol said...

Hi Liz and Maree. Thank you both - it is going on exhibition next week so we shall see?

Carol said...

Thank you Marie and thanks for the visit.

Carol said...

Hi Kath. Thank you. We are so lucky in that we have just so much to paint! More than in any one lifetime!

Dianne said...

Well done, Carol! You have captured the building and mountain behind well.

Really like this one, the bright white building and the umbrella out in front. The shape of the building is so interesting too.

Thanks Dianne. I am sure you know the venue well! We are so lucky to live where we live!
